Adelaide Skydivers from Lower Light travelled to Southern California with other like minded skydivers in an attempt to break the current Australian Bigway formation of 119 skydivers linked in freefall, set in 2015 at Perris California.
Skydivers from all over Australia as well as some "friends of Aussies" (FOA's) got together in a culmination of four years hard work to put together the largest formation we could achieve. The last 4 days started trying for 138 way formation and over the next two days, slots were changed and some unfortunate people were dropped off before the team managed to get 130 to do their best jump all at the same time. The photo's were taken and sent back to Australia for judging and withing the hour we got the message we were waitng for......."the formation of 130 was complete and correct.....Yahoo!!!!!!!!!!!
A huge congratulations to all our Lower Light Skydivers involved: Vlasto Zamecnik, Sandy Nieuwenhoven, Skye Kalms and Allan Gray.
