VIDEO: Daredevils base jump from the top of Burj Khalifa
What’s On has video footage provided by SkyDive Dubai of daredevils base-jumping from the top of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, in Downtown Dubai.
As the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa is no stranger to amazing stunts, from Mission Impossible being shot there to the Crown Prince celebrating Dubai winning Expo 2020.
But now the tower – which stands at 828m tall – has witnessed something that surpasses even those. Skydive Dubai sponsored Soul Flyers World Champions Vince Reffet and Fred Fugen broke the Guinness World Record for the ‘highest base jump from the tallest building in the world’ this week when they took flight from a three-metre platform protruding from the very top.
Check out the video below.
Speaking afterwards, Fred said: “This was the jump of a lifetime and an achievement of three years of hard training. I am glad we landed successfully, accomplishing a lifelong dream.”
Vince added: “This was my best jump by far. It was a dream come true.”
