VIDEO: Canadian Forces Parachute Team jumps in Saskatoon
The Canadian Forces Parachute Team: The SkyHawks performed a jump for the Saskatoon media on Friday, August 5.
The group took off from John G. Diefenbaker International Airport onboard a Casa 212 aircraft before exiting the plane at an altitude of 12,500 feet.
The team eventually landed behind the Sherbrook Community Centre in east Saskatoon.
It was 25-year-old Corporal Johann Reimer's first jump in his hometown of Saskatoon.
Reimer has taken part in nearly 300 hundred jumps in five different countries, but had never executed one in his home province prior to Friday's exercise.
The SkyHawks will be performing in the Cameco Canada Remembers International Air Show in Saskatoon August 6 and August 7.
