This incredible footage shows champion base jumpers Vince Reffet and Fred Fugen setting a world record by jumping from the pinnacle of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, in Dubai. The drop was 2,717 feet.

“This is the dream,” says Reffet in the video.

Fugen insists they’re not crazy. “We don’t like to scare ourselves, that’s not the goal. You know people think that you base jump because you are crazy, you like to get scared,” he says. “We like to fly, you know, we like to have fun. You know so if you are scared … there is no fun.”

The pair set a new world record with their jump.
