[Barcroft TV] A TEAM of 164 skydivers hurtle towards the earth HEAD-FIRST - setting a new world record in the process. The aerial athletes exited simultaneously from seven aircraft above the drop zone at Skydive Chicago in Ottawa, Illinois. Flying at 20,000ft, the jumpers required breathing apparatus as they smashed the previous world record of 138 in the vertical formation (freefly) category. The jump team were required to join hands in a pre-designed formation while upside down and travelling at 180mph. The group separated at 7, 500 to fly to clear space and open their parachutes no later than 3,000 feet. Jumpers travelled from around the world to take part, including the UK, France, Belgium, Canada, Australia, Finland, the UAE and Venezuela. - Videographer / Director: Norman Kent-Skydive Chicago
