Flying into the record books: 61 wingsuit skydivers form diamond in the sky over California to create the largest formation ever seen

The group of 61 set the record for the largest flying formation as they flew over Perris Valley, in California
Three aircraft carried the group of flyers to 13,500 feet, from where they jumped and created formation at 5,500 feet
The jump, which included flyers from 12 countries, smashed the previous record set by 42 flyers in June

Gliding through the sky, these breathtakingly beautiful pictures show sixty-one wingsuit skydivers in harmonious diamond-shaped formation.
A riot of colour, they flew into the record books as they soared over California before floating to the ground.
The group set the record for the largest flying formation as they breezed over Perris Valley, in California.

The jump, by Skydive Perris, smashed the previous record set by 42 flyers in June.
Three aircraft carried the group of flyers to 13,500 feet, from where they jumped and created the stunning formation at 5,500 feet.

Ms Weiss said the record was verified by a panel of judges from Fédération Aéronautique Internationale, the group that keeps track of skydiving and other aviation-related records.
Skydive Perris was the site of another record earlier this month when 202 divers linked up to form the world's largest sequential skydiving formation.
Wingsuit diving wear special suits with pressurized wings attached to their bodies, allowing them to glide horizontally while they fall at a slower rate than regular skydivers.
