The Black Demonstration Team had the honor of being able to perform a local parachute demonstration this weekend at the Fayetteville Swamp Dogs baseball game.The Fayetteville Swamps Dogs are a collegiate summer baseball team playing in the Costal Plain League since the 2001 season, when they swamped the South Division with a record of 18 wins and 8 losses.
Eleven black team demonstrators exited our C-31 Friendship five thousand feet above JP Riddle Stadium and put on a fantastic display of our infamous stackout maneuvers followed by a biplane (canopy relative work), which was piloted by SSG Chris Clark and navigator SGT David Echeverry to close out the show.
SSG Chris Clark jumped in the game ball and presented it to the City of Fayetteville Mayor Nat Robertson, who threw the first pitch into the game. It is such a great privilege to be able to jump into local venues around our prestigious All American City, which is the Home of the US Army Parachute Team, Golden Knights. It was such a great pleasure to have our friends, family and local community cheering us on as we landed our black and gold canopies in the center of the stadium. Join us for our next stop Rockford, Illinois!
