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.
The Boston-Portsmouth Air Show was a delight, for Black Team. From the 12th through the the 14th of August, this past weekend. Black Team enjoyed entertaining hundreds of thousands of spectators in the New Hampshire and Maine area. Along with observing several world class stunt pilots and enjoying two separate jet teams, patrons gazed in awe, as our jumpers leapt from the C-31 jump platform at 12,500 feet.
