Black and Gold. Members of the Army's parachute team, the Golden Knights, have been conquering the sky in those colors since 1959, when they started competing on the international circuit.

The team has conducted thousands of shows around the world, impressing fans with hundreds of broken records and countless awards. Even with so much talent in the air, this team of pilots, crew chiefs, mechanics and skydivers are soldiers first.
