    A team of female Russian athletes has set a national women's record with an impressive wingsuit formation flight on July 29 at the Krutitsy airfield in Ryazan Region.

    A group of brave Russian wingsuit flyers set a new national women's record by flying in a formation over Ryazan Region.

    Wingsuit flying is a skydiving discipline and extreme sport which relies on the use of a wingsuit — a specialized jumpsuit comprised of two arm wings and a leg wing, which adds surface area to the human body to increase lift and allow wearers to fly impressive horizontal distances at a slower descent rate, thus increasing their time in freefall.
