Human Red Arrows

Just like the Red Arrows, they soar through the sky in perfect formation leaving a trail of smoke in their wake. Unlike the Red Arrows, this daredevil crew do it without aeroplanes.

They are skydivers wearing just a helmet and a body suit with flaps of material between the legs and under the arms to act as wings. The team leap from a plane at 13,000ft and fly inches apart as they glide to earth at 120mph with smoke canisters strapped to their ankles.
