Tuesday, July 2, 2019!
In celebration of the 4th of July, Southwest Tech would like to recognize those who fought for the freedom of the United States and host an event that honors veterans and those currently serving in the military. All are invited to join us for this FREE celebration.
Gates Open: 8 AM
Parachute Jump: 10 AM
Gates will open at 8:00 a.m. in preparation for the 10:00 a.m. scheduled jump time. Immediately following the jump the Boeing CH-47 Chinook helicopter will attempt to land. Children will be able to help the U.S. Golden Knights pack parachutes, get autographs, and tour the aircraft. The American twin-engine, tandem-rotor, heavy-lift helicopter is among the heaviest lifting Western helicopters.
Everyone – honoring veterans
