On Friday the 13th in the afternoon, 102 skydivers from across the country gathered in Farnham, Québec to break the record for the largest skydiving formation in Canada. The previous record was set in 2006 by 59 jumpers at Skydive Burnaby, in Ontario. 4 planes were used to haul the 102 skydivers to altitude and over the next 60 seconds, they would be successful in building and holding the formation for 7 seconds before breaking up, tracking away, opening their parachutes and landing back at the drop zone.
