Watch the U.S. Army’s parachute team at the ‘Home of the Airborne’
With more than 460 championships under their belts, the Golden Knights are no strangers to performing precision aerial maneuvers while falling to earth reaching speeds up to 120 miles per hour. More than 50 years after its start, the team captivates audiences at stadiums, events, air shows and other venues across the nation and around the world. The 90 soldiers who make up the Golden Knights serve with the team for three years. They are stationed at Fort Bragg and have all been trained in one of the Army’s military occupational specialties. You can catch a glimpse of the famous routines at practices held Monday through Thursday between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. at the Laurinburg-Maxton Airport in Scotland County.
