Parachuting into the 2015 Labor Day Liftoff

As part of the annual Colorado Springs Balloon Festival, which used to be called the Classic but now is called the Liftoff, the parachutists at the US Air Force Academy stage demonstration landings in the midst of the crowds at Memorial Park. It is always a thrill, these guys and gals are quite talented, and they always hit their mark. I took these pictures and the video at the bottom of the page on 5 September 2015.

Single jumps were followed by a four-man team that performed some maneuvers on the way down. It was a very professional operation, perhaps the best that you can see on a regular basis in the country. I have a separate page for the balloon liftoff here, and one for the evening Balloon Glow here.
