Video: World record base jump off Burj Khalifa
Incredible footage shows entire 828m leap off world's tallest building
Skydive Dubai-sponsored Soul Flyers World Champions Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet took the first leap off the Burj Khalifa, 828 meters tall, on Monday, claiming the new Guinness World Record title of the Highest Base Jump from the tallest building, exhibiting their astonishing base jumping skills.
The jump from the Burj Khalifa was only possible with the construction of a 3 X 1 meter platform at the very top of the pinnacle and was an immense task in itself. The structure which was recently spotted by residents and tourists, took a total of three days for installation with challenges faced due to weather constrictions limiting the time available for construction. Throughout the whole period, the highest safety measures were put in place to ensure the pinnacle did not get damaged.
And below is the incredible footage of the unbelievable jump.
