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.
On Thursday, July 14th, 15 Golden Knights arrived in Indiana for the Gary Air Show. With three aircraft crew members and two ground safety personnel, the Gary Air Show was privileged to have 10 demonstration parachutists for each of the five scheduled performances. While this may seem like just another number to most, it actually opens up several possibilities for our traveling demonstration teams. Scheduled to be a Black Team show, our flexibility grew when 3 Gold Team Demonstrators, as well as another from our Headquarters element, opted to join the mission.
