The new record was set yesterday in the sky's over Ottawa, Illinois.

Travelling at speeds of up to 240 miles per hour, 164 skydivers flying head-down built the largest ever vertical skydiving formation on Friday over central Illinois in the United States, smashing the previous record.
It took the international team 13 attempts to beat the 2012 mark set by 138 skydivers.
The formation, resembling a giant flower, floated above Skydive Chicago in Ottawa for a matter of seconds before the flyers broke away, deployed their parachutes, and whooped and hollered their way to the ground to the jubilation of spectators.

Wow !
