Record Set At Tullahoma Airport

skydivers2A number of area residents turned out at the Tullahoma Regional Airport Saturday to watch members of the Tennessee Skydiver’s club attempt to break an unofficial record. 33 skydivers jumped from two planes at a height of 14,500 feet and then joined hands to create a formation over the airport. The unofficial state record was set in the 1990s at the Tullahoma airport.
People with lawn chairs and cameras showed up for the various jumps that took place throughout the day, with the first one at 9:15 a.m. Everyone who watched the skydivers float to the ground were impressed with the proficiency of the jumpers as they cruised in to the landing site.
