Skyfall: Brown sets world record with catch from way up above

BY foxsports • June 17, 2015

Steelers receiver Antonio Brown wanted another shot to set a world record.

Brown failed to catch a football multiple times from a record height of 360 feet above last year when filming for ESPN's Sport Science, but he was determined to try again this year.

You're probably asking how they get the ball that high in the first place, and the answer is a drone. Light winds of 10 mph can move the ball as much as two feet per second when falling from such an altitude, making the ball difficult to track. Speeds as high as 81 mph don't make the task any easier.
