IT'S COLD, THE AIR IS THIN, HARD TO FLY, AND YOUR VISION IS OBSTRUCTED WHILE THE STUFF YOU ARE WEARING, AND YOU'RE FLYING WE ARE YOUR TANK ON YOUR LEG. ACCORDING TO JUDGES, DESPITE THE CHALLENGES, THIS GROUP SET SEVERAL STATE, NATIONAL, AND WORLD RECORDS, RECORDS BASED ON THE ALTITUDE THE JUMP FROM, 33,000 FEET, FREE FALL DISTANCE, AND THE SIZE OF THE GROUP. ANYTIME YOU DO ANYTHING THAT BREAKS A WORLD RECORD, IT'S A BIG DEAL. IT'S EXCITING AND YOU GET YOUR NAME IN THE RECORD BOOKS. IT'S SOMETHING THAT IS ALWAYS THERE. I'M THE ONLY WOMAN TO DO THIS. COME ON, LADIES. YOU CAN DO IT TOO. THEY ARE ALREADY PLANNING THEIR NEXT RECORD-BREAKING JUMP THEY WANT TO DOUBLE THE SIZE AND JUMP FROM 40,000 FEET. AS THEY SAY, THE SKY IS THE LIMIT.
