Wings of Blue Jump for Gold and Pigskin


There’s an Air Force Academy team that will be stealing the spotlight at three college football bowl games, but the team won’t be showing off its skills on the gridiron. These cadets will be stealing the show from the sky.

The gold-medal-winning Air Force Academy’s Wings of Blue parachuting team will be jumping into the Military Bowl on Dec. 28, the Insight Bowl on Dec. 30 and the Orange Bowl on Jan. 4, according to information provided by Air Force Academy Public Affairs.

A team of cadets recently won a gold medal for their freefall acrobatic skills at the U.S. Parachute Association’s National Skydiving Championship. Members of Wings of Blue will compete at the National Collegiate Parachuting Championships Dec. 28-Jan. 2.

If you’re not lucky enough to have a ticket to any of the upcoming bowls, check out a couple of the cadets in action in this video.
