Skydivers fly world’s largest flag for cancer awareness

A team of skydivers soared their way into the record books for skydiving with the world’s largest flag. The oversized flag measured in at a whopping 19,568sq ft.

The record-breaking jump, which was performed by US based Team Fastrax, took place in Middletown, Ohio, and was done to raise awareness of cancer. Brothers John and David Hart organised the stunt in honour of their sister Jennifer Rose Schaffer, who lost her battle with pancreatic cancer in April of this year. The loving siblings opted for a lavender colored flag during the stunt as it represents sufferers of all types of cancer.
