EL PASO COUNTY – The US Air Force Academy’s Parachute team will glide into the stadium at Falcon High School Tuesday.

The Winds of Blue will perform a skydiving demonstration following a ceremony in the gym that will honor veterans for their service.

The event was originally scheduled to coincide with Veterans Day last November but was rescheduled due to a winter storm.

The ceremony is scheduled to start at 1:30 p.m. with the Wings of Blue demonstration about an hour after that.

The jump is, of course, dependent on the weather.
