Leap Frogs join Blue Angels in the sky over Pensacola

PENSACOLA, FL (WALA) -

The Blue Angels are the big headliner of the Homecoming Show, but there are other eye opening acts as well.

One of them was a precision parachute group.  

The United States Navy Parachute Team, known as the "Leap Frogs," put on a demonstration. 

Among those on the team was a Pensacola native who returned home.

Jim Woods said, "We jumped out of four Stearman (aircraft), which are actually old aircraft that have been flying since the forties. But we flew a diamond formation.  We exited from 6500 feet.  We opened our parachutes and flew together.  We built a four stack and then we opened up into what we call a diamond put out the American flag to start the show today."
 
Team members consist of active duty personnel from Naval Special Warfare, including Navy Seals.
