Awesome 81-Man Parachute Formation

14 08 2007

This video of a record-breaking 81-man parachute formation has to be seen to be believed. At first it almost looks like a huge kite or something, but then you see parachutes slowly peeling away in what they call a “starburst” breakaway.

It’s a miracle that they could coordinate combining into something that big and then break apart without getting tangled with each other. I know I wouldn’t volunteer to be the guy in the middle of that setup!
