One hundred and one female skydivers set the Russian record for the largest group free fall on July 13, joining hands to form a flower pattern in midair over the town of Kolomna. The previous Russian record involved 88 participants in a free-fall formation. The skydivers, members of an all-women team called Pearls of the Sky, left an open space in the formation in memory of their former captain, Irina Sinitsina, who died last year in group skydiving stunt in California.
