Bridges, tandem skydiving planned for American Legion World Series

The US Army's parachute team, the Golden Knights, will perform during the American Legion World Series.

Pilots of three T-28 Trojan warbirds are scheduled to perform bridging at Keeter Stadium during the first three days of the 2022 American Legion World Series.

Warbirds are vintage military aircraft now operated by civilian organizations or individuals. The T-28s bound for Shelby are retired military trainers now owned by the Museum of Flight in Rome, Ga.

The first round as part of the Parade of Champions was planned for August 11, the tournament’s opening day.

All eight regional teams competing for the national title will line up at Veterans Stadium between games 3 and 4 of the day.

The pilots will implement another flyover at the stadium during Friday night’s games.

Warbirds will be displayed to the public at Shelby County Cleveland Regional Airport Saturday morning from 10 a.m. to noon. The pilots will finally fly a flyover into the stadium on Saturday afternoon as part of the USA Military Appreciation Day.
