New footage shows the dramatic moment paratroopers leap from aircraft during a training exercise in Corsica.

The dramatic video – recorded on a GoPro camera attached to one of the brave soldiers – shows the paratrooper’s colleague jump out to dizzying heights, before the next soldier takes their turn. 

The camera catches part of the Corsica coastline before glimpsing the scores of other parachutes taking part in the exercise.

Released by the British Army, the exercise saw British paratroopers from the 2nd Battallion train with their French counterparts on the Mediterranean island.

The airborne UK Parachute Regiment is the only line infantry regiment of the army which has not been amalgamated with another unit since the Second World War.
