The Skyhawks are Canada's only military parachute demonstration team.
Why have a parachute demonstration team?
Because some pros can jump out of perfectly good working aircraft and look insanely cool while doing so.
They jumped from perhaps the most box-like aircraft currently available:
It's a Short SC.7 Skyvan. You could say it's boxy but good.
The first jumper out the door had a large Canadian flag on display.
Next came a giant US flag.
Then it got more wild from there.
Then a few joined together decided to demonstrate how to rotate to the left and right, they went to a full 90 degrees on each side.
Lots of very cool maneuvers followed, and they did stuff with parachutes that I did not believe were possible.
Yes, one of the parachutists is upside down, held only by his legs to the other two jumpers.
Quite a few more cool individual and team stunts followed, and these paras had some serious skills.
All jumpers descended safely, and made it look easy:
The team then doffed their chutes and lined up for a parting salute.
That was a very impressive display of parachute prowess.
