Skydiving never looked so peaceful

Depending on who you ask, skydiving is either exciting, terrifying, or both. This video of divers from the Melbourne Skydive Centre coasting through the sky like jellyfish makes skydiving look like a peaceful sort of transcendence, more flying than falling. Instead of an adrenaline packed plummet down gravity’s vacuum, this video showcases the serenity of human flight. Filmed in February of 2011, world champions Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet from Soul Flyers visited Melbourne to provide 3D coaching to some of Australia’s top skydivers. The result is this ethereal video. Check it out in full screen mode and tell me it does not make you want to jump out of a plane.
