The records include Minnesota's largest formation, a ring of 12 people gripping hands; highest altitude in North Dakota, at 16,500 feet; and largest female head-down dive in Nebraska, with four jumpers.

The achievements are considered official because the United States Parachute Association began keeping track of records three years ago.
