CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - The U.S. Army Golden Knights parachute demonstration team flew into the Cape Girardeau airport and appeared before the Redhawks football home opener.

The Knights appeared before the SEMO Redhawks’ football home opener against Lindenwood on September 9 at the new Houck Stadium.

The Golden Knights are known for their aerial displays, with a legacy of more than 60 years.

They say not only will the event celebrate the start of football season, but the community will also get the chance to connect with the U.S. Army.
