Don't know. We were told not to chat or banter with the pilot, wearing civvies, at his request. It was just in, up and out for an administrative jump squeezed into our training schedule.

I've also tailgated the Caribou, which has apparently used the same engine; but, that procedure wasn't remarkably different from other aircraft.

Latest info is that thirty-seven aircraft will be participating.



I hope that was of some interest to you.

Nice video, thank you. Should be a really good show. I've never gotten into reenactments and I already have my French wings (Le Brevet de Parachutiste Militaire (BPM); so, I don't anticipate participating in the parachuting demonstration.

It could be an opportunity for others to earn their French wings; though, it may take awhile for award:

FORT LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (June 9, 2016) -- After 41 years, retired Maj. Bob Cassella has his French jump wings.
