U.S. Army Golden Knights parachute in to KC Air Show

By Sara Shepherd · August 20, 2011 · Comment on this

In dark and frigid air about 12,500 feet above land, six U.S. Army Golden Knights dove out of an airplane Friday with flames shooting from pyrotechnic packs on their ankles, a night-jump demonstration for VIP onlookers at the Wheeler Downtown Airport in Kansas City, Mo. The Army’s elite parachuting team will perform more jumps Saturday and Sunday at the Kansas City Aviation Expo and Air Show, kcairshow.com. A seat at the airport provides the best view of the Knights after they jump. Here’s an inside look at what goes on before.
