There is not much more to say about this, I think.
Some web-pages misinterpreted how the jump was made. (They thought there was a 50s delay between throwing out the chute and jumping after it. But the 50sec is the time in freefall before linking up with the chute.)
The record states that mr. Kubo wore no chute when jumping out. (maybe there sere safety skydivers with tandem harnesses aorund, but that would not diminish the record to me.)
Much kudos to Mr Yasuhiro Kubo, world record holder in banzai skydiving. Go go Mr Kubo.
Much kudos to the Guinness book of world records for keeping accurate records and also the willingness to communicate via email.
