JUMPERS


Another annual Fair St. Louis event is the air show. It was smaller than usual this year (no biplanes, which I really love) but there was still some cool stuff.

This is the Army's Golden Knights parasailing stunt team. Kind of a weird name since, to my knowledge, there were no parasails during the Middle Ages. Nevertheless, they were tremendously entertaining, swooping around the legs of the Arch..

Not my cup of tea (the Knight part), but they do make for great entertainment and photos. You mean you didn't know they had parasails in the Middle Ages? Sure they did, just like they had airports during the American Revolution. ;)

There's a military jump team here that I've seen do this over Parliament Hill. It's quite a sight to see!
