Have you ever been skydiving? I’m not sure that I’d be brave enough to jump from the plane, but I can’t doubt that it would be an incredible experience.

For 217 skydivers in Arizona, their most recent dive wasn’t just an incredible experience — it was also a world-record-breaking event.

According to Caters News, the skydivers hoped to break the world record for “the largest ever group to complete two and three different formations while free-falling.” Instead of just jumping from the plane and enjoying the view until they reached the ground, these skydivers hoped to dance in the sky, creating a show for those on the ground.

So, 217 of them piled into 10 planes, flew above Arizona, and jumped. The skydivers were hurtling toward the ground at 120 mph — but none of them seemed particularly worried or pressed for time.

Instead, they appeared calm, cool, and collected enough to create some pretty amazing formations in the sky as they made their way down to the ground.

Imagine being an unsuspecting passerby and seeing this in the sky above you!

I may personally be uncertain about going skydiving and taking the plunge (literally), but this video has definitely made me consider it a little more seriously.
