Skydivers Set World Record by BASE Jumping Off the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, The Tallest Building in the World

Skydive Dubai-sponsored skydivers Vince Reffet and Fred Fugen of the Soul Flyers skydiving team performed a BASE jump off the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, in Dubai on April 21st. This particular jump sets a new world record thanks to having been performed off the very pinnacle of the 2,722-foot-tall building with the help of a specially constructed platform rather than lower on the structure like other jumps.
