  • U.S. Army Parachute Team Golden Knights: Jumping out of an aircraft 12,500 feet above the earth’s surface, racing to North Avenue Beach at speeds exceeding 120 mph and landing with smiles, ready to do it all again; all in a days work for the Golden Knights.
  • U.S. Navy Parachute Team Leap Frogs:  A typical Leap Frogs performance consists of fourteen jumpers leaping out of an aircraft at an altitude of 12,500 feet. After deploying their chutes, the Leap Frogs fly their canopies together to build dramatic canopy-relative work formations.
