Largest Iraqi flag flies over US
broke a Guinness record for largest flag flown while skydiving when he flew the Iraqi flag while parachuting over the Skydive Chicago facility in Ottawa, Illinois, a few days ago. Before that he flew in a lawn chair suspended by helium-filled party balloons over central Oregon, USA just last month. Lafta, born in 1978, was part of the team that did the first ever Mt. Everest skydive in 2008 and he hopes to represent Iraq in space one day.
