The U.S. Army Golden Knights Parachute Team dropped into Grand Junction this weekend for Air Show Colorado 2008.

The Knights invited members of the media to come up on a jump flight and showed off just how much they love their jobs!

The flight over the Grand Junction Regional Airport got up to an altitude of 10,000 feet over sea level, where temperatures dropped down into the 30's and the wind chill blasted at 120 miles per hour.

The Golden Knights travel all across the country to show off their skills and help remind Americans of the hard work and sacrifice of America's military men and women.
