A group of 138 skydivers have shattered the vertical skydiving world record by flying heads-down in a massive snowflake formation in Illinois.

They fell at speeds of up to 220 mph (355 kmph).

It took 15 attempts over three days for the team to successfully break the previous record of 108 skydivers set in 2009.
