Perfect landing

A member of the Golden Knights, the U.S. Army's premiere parachute team, lands on a precision target as the Golden Knights' announcer catches the American flag before it touches the ground. The Golden Knights parachute team exited a C-23 Sherpa aircraft at an altitude of more than 12,000 feet to allow them the maximum amount of time to perform their dynamic aerial stunts.
