Pearls of the Sky break skydiving record.

Video: Female skydivers break record for formation jump

A GROUP of 101 female skydivers have broken a Russian record after forming a flower in the sky.

The all-female group known as 'Pearls of the Sky' dedicated their formation to former captain Irina Sinitsina, who died last year during a skydiving stunt in California.

Only a year ago Sinitsina had led the team in an 88-person flower free fall formation. In honour of their captain, the team left one space empty to signify a 'missing petal'.
