Crown Prince soars in Jordan’s skies with Red Bull Air Force

24. May 2017

His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II piloted a helicopter that carried members of the Red Bull Air Force team above the Dead Sea area as they prepared to undertake a one-of-a-kind jump at the lowest point on earth, at 430 meters below sea level.

The jump came as part of a series of sky adventures organized by Red Bull Jordan in cooperation with the Jordan Tourism Board and with the support of the Royal Hashemite Court to boost tourism by promoting Jordan’s unique locations in new and innovative ways.

Earlier, His Royal Highness received the Red Bull team and was briefed on the details and logistics of the jump, which took place over the “Panorama” area at the Dead Sea, after the Crown Prince cleared the way for the jumpers to commence their descent.

The team members descended from a height of 1,865 meters above sea level, opening their parachutes at about 170 meters below sea level and landing on the Dead Sea shore.

video of the jump is available on www.facebook.com/redbull and www.redbull.com
