Record Wingsuit Skydiving Formation Mistaken for UFO

Some onlookers mistook a record-breaking wingsuit skydiving formation for a UFO. 68 skydivers from 16 different countries underwent testing before they being allowed on the team which used four planes and underwent seven drops before finally mastering the diamond formation which set US skydiving records. Wingsuit skydiving is still new enough that it is not officially recognized worldwide, but the formation jumping record is certainly on US books.

The jump took place over Lake Elsinore, CA and lasted for over a minute. The skydivers flew in formation over some 2-1/2 across the ground.
