The Wings of Blue USAF Parachute Team jump from a Chilean Air Force C-130 aircraft and into the skies above the FIDAE (Feria Internacional del Aire y del Espacio) air show, April 6th, 2018 in Santiago, Chile. The jump was one of several performances completed by the Wings of Blue team during the air show. The Wings of Blue team were hosted by Boinas Azules, a Chilean Air Force parachute team.
The FIDAE air show was an opportunity to further the familiarity and understanding between the U.S. and Chile. U.S. personnel worked closely with their Chilean partners to ensure a successful air show, coordinating air show performances as well as the arrival and placement of various U.S. aircraft, including the F-35 Lightning II, F-22 Raptor and B-52 Stratofortress.
