First World Record BASE Jump Off World’s Tallest Building

Posted by Andrew R.

Prior to 2008, no one had ever jumped off the world’s tallest building – the Burj Dubai Tower, which stands at 2,717 feet (828 meters). While still under construction at the time, these two guys travel to Dubai with an elaborate plan to attempt the first world record BASE jump off the Burj. Disguised as engineers, they break into the Burj, walk up 160 flights of stairs in blistering heat, jump off the building and try to escape without getting caught. It’s an epic adventure!
