High-flying record

Russia skydivers broke the national record for the largest connected free-fall formation when 186 people joined in the air.

The team of a training centre in Kolomna, a town 100 kilometers south-east of Moscow, beat the previous record of 180.

“On August 11, the efforts of the parachutists bore fruit. An aerial video showed that they were successful in making the 186-man formation,” Aerograd Kolomna head Roman Lezhnev told reporters on Friday.

The team jumped out of 10 planes at a height of 6,500 meters.
