On August 26 and 27 Gold Team traveled to Brunswick Maine for the “Great State of Maine Airshow” The Team performed our signature night jump with pyro before two thousand spectators on Friday night. The dark night skies were lit up by the jumpers pyro trails. Many of the spectators would even say that the demonstrators even looked like UFO’s screaming out of the sky. (more…)
After 52 years of service, Golden Knights have created many traditions. At the same time, several communities have inducted us into theirs. One such community to involve the Golden Knights into their annual traditions, is Gray Tennessee. For several years, Golden Knights performed aerial demonstrations into their annual fair. We became a regular sight in their Tennessee skies. The small community looked forward to our visit every year. However, the black and gold of Army parachutes have been absent since 1996. Black Team was honored to represent the Team’s return on Monday, August 22nd. (more…)
The Black Demonstration Team was honored to attend the Kansas City Air Expo between the 19th and 21st of August. Shortly after our arrival, the Team prepared for a night drop. One of the most fun performances that the Golden Knights perform is our famed night jump. The Team steps out of our C-31 jump aircraft at 12,500 feet and ignites pyrotechnics attached to their feet.
