Gold Demonstration Team spent this last weekend at the Great New England Air Show at Westover Air Reserve Base in Chicopee, Massachusetts. We performed four shows before a crowd of over two hundred thousand spectators and fans.
This weekend brought along a few weather obstacles, but nothing the Golden Knights weren’t trained to handle. Working alongside the Canadian forces, the Team opened the show flying in both the U.S. and Canadian National flags with their respective anthems. We were able to host some of the U.S. Navy Blue Angel crew, Westover Air Force Servicemen and women and a variety of media and press, to share with them the experience of jumping out over such an amazing air show venue.
After each performance, the Team was welcomed by hundreds of fans and future Soldiers who helped us pack our parachutes, and learned about what it takes to be a Soldier in today’s Army, and a teammate on the U.S. Army Parachute Team. We look forward to the next time we can be a part of the excitement and hospitality of the Great New England Air Show!
Please join or follow us next weekend at the Salute to Veterans Air Show in Columbia, Missouri. We will be joined once again with the Canadian Snow Birds and many other incredible performers!
