Banzai skydive From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The sport of banzai skydiving involves throwing a parachute out of a plane and then jumping after it, the aim being to freefall with the parachute, strap it on and deploy the parachute before hitting the ground.

The longest time ever recorded between skydiver and parachute leaving the plane and linking up is 50 seconds.

Craig Glenday, editor of Guinness World Records, has used Banzai Skydiving as an extreme example of the book's policy to keep records for record categories in which only the life of the participant would be put at risk. As a counter-example, he indicates that record attempts that might put another person or animal at risk, such as "fattest pet," are not allowed.
