National record for Russian skydivers

One hundred and one female skydivers have set a new Russian record after forming the pattern of a flower in mid-air.

The sky-divers, who were from the all-women "Pearls of the Sky" team dedicated their jump to their former Captain Irina Sinitsina, who died last autumn in a group skydiving stunt in California.

They left one space open in the centre of the formation to represent their "missing petal".
