Gold Team and Team 6 pull together to continue the mission.

The Friday demonstration at any air show is typically the eye-catching experience for media and early attendees.  However this year for the first time our C-31 Fokker aircraft suffered minor damage to the right landing gear, shutting down the Golden Knights for our first show.  Although faced with logistical issues, Team 6 back at Fort Bragg has kicked into high gear and has already shipped out new parts to fix our aircraft.  We will be up and running to perform our signature night mass demonstrations.

With our jump platform down, today’s mission was to energize the crowd and to meet as many spectators as possible.  We spent the afternoon in front of the Army recruiting tent discussing the inner workings of the exciting life of an Army soldier.

Gold Team looks forward to the future jumps to be demonstrated over the weekend and can’t wait to get back into the sky for MCAS MIRAMAR.
