Don’t look down! Two BASE jumpers in Dubai break a world record by launching themselves from the top of the world’s tallest building, The Burj Khalifa.

Watch the video above to see Vince Reffet and Fred Fugen jump from the pinnacle 2,717 feet from the ground.

The old BASE jump record from a building was 2,204 feet, 8 inches by Nasser Al Neyadi and Omar Alhegelan off the 160th floor of the same building.

The highest altitude BASE jump record is 21,666 feet set by Glenn Singleman and Heather Swan in wingsuits from a ledge on Mount Meru in India.
