ATLANTA (WTVM) – It wasn’t a meteorite falling out of the sky in Atlanta on Thursday night, but a highly-trained parachutist from Fort Benning that wowed the crowd.

Prior to the Virginia Tech-Georgia Tech game at Bobby Dodd Stadium on Nov. 12, members of the Silver Wings Parachute Demonstration Team took to the nighttime skies of Atlanta to a roaring crowd.

The video was posted on YouTube by the Georgia Tech Athletic Department, and offers a point-of-view experience from jump to landing. 

Formed in 1965 as a part of the Airborne division stationed at Fort Benning, the Silver Wings perform demonstrations across the county, their website says.
