During the pregame festivities before Sunday’s game against the Raiders, I was pretty shocked when I saw people parachute into INVESCO Field at Mile High and land near midfield. I just saw a documentary on “Fan Man,” some guy who would randomly parachute into sporting events, so I half expected to see security sprint out to grab the parachuters.
Then I remembered the Red Bull Air Force was part of the pregame entertainment. They’re an elite crew of air savvy professionals that continue to push the envelope in the sports of paragliding, hang gliding, skydiving and BASE jumping.
Anyway, we just got some pretty cool pictures of them jumping into the stadium.
Like I wrote in the blog yesterday — I think I want to sky dive at some point in my life, just not sure I’d be willing to try to land in the middle of a football field in front of 70,000 fans.
More pictures after the jump.
