Dubai creates another Guinness record for highest altitude skydiving fireworks display at 5,150m
Dubai residents were amazed with mysterious objects flying across the skies some days ago with social media abuzz with questions “what was it?
Well, now we can reveal that mysterious objects which some called meteorites were skydivers with flares in pursuit of the Guinness World Record.
The Dubai Media Office said on Thursday, “Reflecting extraordinary and innovative pursuit of excellence in sports, Skydive Dubai set another Guinness World Record for the highest Altitude Skydiving Fireworks Display at 5,150 metres.
Over the last few weeks, highly-skilled skydivers shot across Dubai’s night enthralling onlookers with scintillating pyrotechnic skydiving displays.”
In the past week, several videos were shared on Instagram and Twitter showing fireballs streaking through the skies above Dubai.
These supposed-fireballs were highly skilled skydivers dropped from a plane with flares streaking through them.
The spectacle was a talk of the town with inquisitive residents asking what it was. But some said Dubai never fails to amaze us. It must be something special.
Public figure and Radio Jockey Kris Fade also questioned, “Is this a meteor shower or something else?” But later confirmed that, “Sorry guys, these were skydivers, with flares on. We saw the plane drop them off…friends of my husband. They are amazing 🙌”
Oh by the way, Dubai is not new world records.
Dubai currently holds 339 world records, from world’s tallest building to the world's largest airport terminal to the greatest number of diamonds on a perfume bottle and more in between.
The emirate does everything bigger, glitzier, and grander than life.
