Parachutists on The Plain
WEST POINT, N.Y. _ Following the parade, four members of the Academy's "Black Knights" parachute team jumped from a "Huey" helicopter at 2,500 feet and, after about 10 seconds of free fall, opened their 'chutes and landed on The Plain.
All four were First Class Cadets -- seniors -- and each had made more than 400 jumps. The experience showed, as each landed standing, as easily as if they had jumped off the lowest step of a ladder.
