An international team of skydivers set a new record for formation skydiving at Zephyrhills, Fla., on Sunday. The team achieved a two-point formation with 121 skydivers. "Two points" means that after the first formation was complete, the group transitioned into a second formation before breaking off the effort at 6,000 feet. The event required 20 jumps altogether, from an altitude of 17,500 feet, using five aircraft, a Casa and four Twin Otters.
