FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's the Golden Knights!

At the Fort Wayne Air Show on Friday, seven parachuters with the U.S. Army's renowned Golden Knights boarded a plane and climbed 12,500 feet into the sky before jumping out. They sped down to the ground below at an astonishing 120 miles per hour.

The fearless fliers say the coordinated aerial demonstrations are a good way to bridge the gap between the American Army and the American public.
