  • The footage was taken by 31-year-old Eugene Gretskyi in Alberta, Canada
  • He was joined by pals Terence Lee Dickinson, Evan Rader and Riley Moore 
  • They were able to free fall in the formation, before opening their parachutes
  • Each of skydivers in the video have around 200 jumps under their belts 

This group of daredevil friends managed to get into a bobsleigh formation while falling through the air at 10,000 feet. 

The footage was taken by 31-year-old concrete finisher Eugene Gretskyi in the skies above Alberta, Canada. 

He was joined by pals Terence Lee Dickinson, Evan Rader and Riley Moore. 

Inspired by the 1993 comedy film Cool Runnings which is based on the story of the Jamaican national bobsleigh team, the jumpers grabbed hold of each other as they leapt from the plane.

Arranging themselves into a ‘sitting’ line of four, video from a helmet cam shows them shooting through the skies.

They were able to free fall in the formation for 30 seconds, before breaking away to open their parachutes. 

Eugene said: ‘We love the movie Cool Runnings. That’s where we got our inspiration.

‘We were extra excited about this jump. We had tons of fun and a real blast! 

‘What else would you feel falling from the skies holding onto your friends at 201mph?

‘We practiced the exit in a “dirt dive” on the ground before giving it a go, and accomplished the jump at the second attempt.’ 

Each of skydivers in the video have around 200 jumps under their belts.
