Golden Knights' parachuters drop-plane (Fokker C-31A Troopship)

The Golden Knights use two Fokker C-31A Troopship and two De Havilland Canada UV-18A Twin Otter as their jump aircraft. The C-31A is used by the demonstration teams as a mode of conveyance to over 50 show locations annually, as well as a jump platform while performing at those locations. The UV-18's are most frequently used by the tandem and competition teams and for local jumps near Ft. Bragg due to their shorter range. All of the Knights' aircraft have a unique Golden Knights livery, which is black and white with a gold stripe down the middle of the fuselage. The bottom and tail are painted black (on the C-31A). The tail has the familiar "Army" brand symbol upon it (ex. Twin Otter). Orders have been placed for 3 new De Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter Series 400.[
