Skydive Arizona, an expansive skydiving resort located mid-way between Phoenix and Tucson, hosted this exhilarating showcase of parachuting proficiency. 

Organizers Arizona Arsenal, the vertical formation skydiving team from Skydive Arizona, are very excited about the spectacular feat and are proud of their friends and fellow skydivers. And what a resounding accomplishment they are claiming, more than doubling the previous Guinness world record of a 20-way set in Arizona two years ago.

The team is all experienced skydivers who volunteered to take part in the challenge during the past few months. The breathtaking stunt was captured on film by American aerial photographer Norman Kent. 

And according to organiser Amy Chmelecki, the experience has been "exhilarating". "We have been planning and training for this record for the past two years and have gathered together our crew using ads on Facebook, MySpace and sky diving magazines," Amy said. 

"Because the record is so dangerous and skilled we have been holding regular training camps at Sky Dive Arizona.
