AMMAN — HRH Crown Prince Hussein on Monday 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 in the lowest point on earth, at 430 metres below sea level.
The jump came as part of a series of sky adventures organised by Red Bull Jordan in cooperation with the Jordan Tourism Boards, and with the support of the Royal Hashemite Court to invigorate tourism by promoting Jordan’s unique locations in innovative ways, according to a statement by the organisers.
Earlier in the day, the Crown Prince 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 Prince Hussein cleared the way for the jumpers to commence their descent.
The team members descended from a height of 1,865 metres above sea level, opening their parachutes at about 170 metres below sea level and landing on the Dead Sea shore.
