The Royal Air Force Falcons Display Team - St Athan
Exiting their aircraft at 12,000 ft the team free fall to 4,000 ft having reached a speed of some 120 mph. At this point their canopies have been released and they form up for a variety of turns and spirals. The canopies used are steerable so at the appropriate time they steer to approach the DZ (Drop Zone) into wind to land.
