The U.S. Army Special Operations Command Black Daggers parachute team will perform at the Atlanta Air Show on October 14-15, 2017 over the Atlanta Motor Speedway.

 

The U.S. Army Special Operations Command Parachute Demo Team – the Black Daggers – is comprised entirely of volunteers from throughout the Army Special Operations community. They have diverse backgrounds and possess various military specialties. The team represents the professionalism and dedication of SpecOps forces and perform aerial demonstrations in support of U.S. Army Special Operations Command community outreach and recruiting efforts.

 

The Black Daggers use the military variant of the ram-air parachute, which allows a free-fall parachutist the ability to jump with more than 100lbs of additional equipment attached. In addition to the extra weight, the jumper must also withstand high winds, frigid temperatures and low oxygen levels, all of which require the jumper to be highly skilled.

 

In addition to their full performance the Black Daggers will jump the American flag for the National Anthem at the beginning of the show each day. They will also jump at two of the evening social events. For the latest info on where and when the Black Daggers will be jumping click ‘Like’ below to follow our Facebook page.
