Fokker C-31A “Golden Knights”

I photographed this Fokker C-31A in flight during a parachute performance by the US Army Golden Knights as part of the 2012 Air Expo at McChord AFB. This particular aircraft was named “Excalibur” but more commonly known as “Golden Knight 608” after her tail number. The sister ship was “Ambassador” or “Golden Knight 607” has been retired (September 2018) and is now at the Pima Air and Space Museum.

The Golden Knights now fly
