Skydivers spell out peace in the sky in California

Group of 48 skydivers link hands and spell out ‘PEACE’ in the sky above California to spread a positive message after ‘recent political turmoil’

  • Sky diving squad ranging from 18-80 want inspire others to live harmoniously
  • Awe-inspiring footage shows group jump and use bodies to spell out message
  • Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld, 56, hopes word will resonate further than skydivers

A band of 48 skydivers have simultaneously jumped from a plane and joined their bodies together to make the word ‘peace’.

The move was a bid by the group to spread the message of positivity, urging ‘Peace’ to be found in the world below.

Keen skydiver Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld, 56, believes there’s common misconceptions about those who participate in the extreme-sport – insisting they’re not all ‘young adrenaline junkies’ who ‘get off’ at the thought of risking their lives.

The skydiver used his eclectic thrill-seeking squad, P3, after just one hour of choreography over Perris in California.

The video shows the members who range from 18 to 80 in age, jumping from a plane and impressively form the letters in a seamless movement, managing to keep the letters perfectly aligned as they plummeted to the ground below at a ferocious speed.

The group then divides as they prepare for their landing.

Citing ‘recent political turmoil’ as a key influence behind Chenfeld’s vision, the diverse leapt from 16,500 foot under Dan’s command. 

Chenfeld, a former captain of the US Skydiving team and author of the book ‘Above All Else’, said: ‘It’s always a good time to be reminded of and striving for peace.

‘I’ve always wanted to do this jump, and with the political discourse we are experiencing in the US at the moment, it seemed there was no time better than right now.

‘We can all disagree on certain things, but still get along great – I knew the one word we could all agree on was ‘PEACE.’
