Ernie Torres sets new World Record

This morning Ernie Torres set a new World Record for the number of pine boards broken in freefall! The previous record was 7, set by Jason David Frank, best known for his role as the Green Power Ranger Tommy Oliver. Ernie shattered the old record by breaking 12 boards. He was supported by Skydive Arizona, Arizona Airspeed, Arizona Arsenal, AXIS Flight School, instructors from Adventures in Skydiving and SkyVenture Arizona, and other local talent.
