Over the weekend, 63 women jumped out of airplanes and fell into a new record.

This is a sport known as free-flying.

Meaning that the participants are falling head-down at 165 miles an hour and creating the largest all-female formation ever.

They are in free fall for a minute and a half over Eloy, Arizona, they are using their legs and feet as rudders to steer themselves into a flower shape.

The women say it's like standing in a hurricane, and nearly impossible to move.

Then comes, the most dangerous part of the jump, breaking from the formation in waves, then turning themselves 180 degrees so they can land feet-first.
