Thousands of excited fans lined the Boardwalk, filled the beaches and over 1,600 boats were surrounding the waters hundreds of yards from the beach along the island from Brigantine down to Ventnor.

The Golden Knights are regulars at the annual Dayton Vectran Air Show in Ohio, so when Gold Team arrived in town this last weekend was like seeing some old friends. The show hosted nearly 30,000 spectators, from first-timers to seasoned vets. The weather was great all weekend and made the show enjoyable for everyone…not least of all the jumpers! (more…)
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.
