The FIS Ski Flying World Ski Championships 1994 took place on 20 March 1994 in Planica, Slovenia for the record fourth time. Planica hosted the championships previously when it was part of Yugoslavia in 1972, 1979, and 1985. This was the first major international sporting event to take place in Slovenia after it declared its independence from Yugoslavia in 1991 following the Ten-Day War. It also marked the first time the Czech Republic and Slovakia were dissolved from Czechoslovakia in January 1993.
It was also historic moment when Austria's Andreas Goldberger became the first person in history who jumped over magic mark of 200 metres (660 ft) but unfortunately touched snow with his hands at 202 metres (663 ft) during practice on 17 March and didn't count. Just a couple minutes later Toni Nieminen from Finland became officially the first person who jumped standing on his feet over magic mark of 200 metres (660 ft) when he jumped 203 metres (666 ft). The final last world record 209 metres (686 ft) was set the next day on March 18 by Espen Bredesen.
