Physics Problem

Two equal, rigid objects A and B are dropped from high altitudes toward the Earth at the same time. Felix Baumgartner style free fall without any initial relative velocity against the planet. Somewhere in the Central Atlantic, both will splash.

Object A starts higher than object B and reaches the Atlantic first.

How?
