The video above shows a BASE jump from the pinnacle of the 2,717-foot-high Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the tallest building in the world, by veteran jumpers Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet.

Others have jumped from the building before, including a record setting leap in 2010 from a lower point on the building. The Guinness Book of World Records says that leap took place from 2,204 feet, 8 inches.

The jumpers set up a temporary platform placed on top of the building’s pinnacle for this jump in order to be able to break the record.
