Transcript for Daredevil Women Skydives Into Book of World Records With Free Fall
thanksgiving weekend to remember for one group of women, who, as you can see right here behind me, dove head first into the holiday. Setting a record in a hurry. 165 miles per hour, in fact. Here's abc's linzie janis. Reporter: These 63 women are about to set a world skydiving record. This is not your traditional jump, flying on your belly. These women, ranging from 20 to 53 years old, are doing a super fast, super dangerous sport known as free-flying. The largest all female formation ever. It's vertical skydiving, so we're on our heads while we're in freefall. Reporter: Yes, they are upside down, hurtling head first towards the arizona desert at 165 miles per hour. In freefall, for a minute and a half, using their legs and feet as rudders to steer themselves into this flower shape. All 63 women have to do exactly their job. Reporter: The women say it's like standing in a hurricane. Nearly impossible to move. Then comes the most dangerous part of the jump. The divers, many of them nonprofessional, many of them mothers, break from formation in three ways. Each diver must turn themselves 180 degrees in horizontal position, flying to a place where they have enough space to open their parachute. Something that no one has ever, ever done. Reporter:63 daring women now in the history books. Linzie janis, abc news, new york.
