A few days I wrote about the mysterious structure fitted on top of Burj Khalifa. Well, turned out that it was designed just for another World Record set in Dubai.
Soul Flyers World Champions Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet took the very first jump off Burj Khalifa, 828 meters tall, on Monday, April 21, 2014, claiming the new Guinness World Record title of the Highest Base Jump from the Tallest Building. The event was sponsored by Skydive Dubai.
A really amazing stunt and a geat video.
“On behalf of the entire team and myself, I would like to thank Sheikh Hamdan nin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Sports Council for giving us the opportunity in making this project a reality. Skydive Dubai has become a pioneer in regards to aerial sports and will continue to strive in setting more new world records.” said Nasser Al Neyadi, President of the Aero Sport Federation and Chairman of Skydive Dubai.
