Join the U.S. Army “Golden Knights” parachute team on a night skydive

Here’s an interesting video of the the U.S Army Parachute Team “Golden Knights” Gold Team during a night skydive event at the 2014 Oregon International Air Show.

Nicknamed and commonly known as the Golden Knights, the United States Army Parachute Team, is a demonstration and competition parachute team which conduct parachute demos across the U.S. and, occasionally, abroad.

The demo team is made of two demonstration teams, the Gold and Black team, after the official U.S. Army colors, made of 12 members which use the two Fokker C-31A Troopship jump aircraft, and sometimes the UV-18C Twin Otter Series 400.

On Sept. 19, 2014, the Golden Knights Gold Team performed a night skydive event at the 2014 Oregon International Air Show, at Portland, Oregon. Fortunately, they had a camera with them.
