More records set at Skydive Chicago

Posted by wlpo on August 17, 2015

Thirty-nine women skydivers from around the country have set a state record in Ottawa.

The women jumped from two planes Saturday afternoon to build a cross-shaped belly formation over Skydive Chicago. The skydivers topped the previous record of 35 women set in August 2013. The national record is 182 women.

On Sunday, 32 women from the same skydiving team set a state women’s two-point sequential record, meaning they built two pre-designed formations during one skydive.
