Skydivers or Fireworks? Night World Record Skydive!

Posted by Andrew R.

So there has been some secret shenanigans brewing over at Skydive Chicago. A group of vertical elite, headed by none other than Rook Nelson himself, set out to set some seriously awesome looking night vertical formation world records. Over the past few months the group has been communicating and planning. One requirement – all participants must make their own suits and then must be fully functional in order to participate. The suits ranged from high tech to homemade. Rumor has it Ben Nelson used a whole roll of duck tape. The results? Judge for yourself!

Here is a mashup of the last daytime practice jump and the actual night time record jump.
