Opening Ceremonies Flag Jump
The Gathering of Mustangs & Legends
"The Final Roundup"
Rickenbacker International Airport
Friday September 28, 2007
IN THIS VIDEO, watch as one jumper exits from the Cessna 182 jump aircraft and deploys the American flag while the national anthem is played. The jumper is being circled by the four PT-17 Stearmans of the Red Baron Squadron, and as he makes his decent upon Rickenbacker International Airport, a flight of three P-51 Mustangs makes a pass down the show line (behind the flag) to help open up the Friday show. The jumper featured in the video is Paul McCowan, the founder of the E Team Skydivers, based in Ohio. His site is at http://www.eteamskydivers.com . Please direct all e-mails regarding any performances to Paul and make sure to tell him I sent you.
Paul McCowan also performed the opening ceremonies flag jump at the 2008 Joint Services Open House at Andrews AFB. You can view that jump at http://youtube.com/watch?v=2RDmLYRgB3k .
