Skydiving Record Smash

In the skies over Chicago, 164 skydivers jumped out of airplanes on July 31 and broke the record for number of people in a head-down formation, from a record last set in 2012 with 138 divers. Photographer Brian Buckland observed the event and took this incredible photo of the vertical divers, who were at some points traveling as fast as 240 mph.
