Saturday, October 28th, Team Fastrax™ will perform their popular patriotic American Flag demonstration jump as part of the Northwestern Wildcats football game. The Wildcats will play the Michigan State Spartans in a much anticipated Big Ten face-off. The game starts at 3:30pm, and as part of the opening ceremony, Team Fastrax™ will jump in with their majestic 2,000 sq. ft. American Flag, red, white and blue smoke, and the Northwestern flag. The show will be displayed on the scoreboard with the Team’s live air-to-ground video feed, so spectators can enjoy the experience on a whole new level.
John Hart, Owner of Start Skydiving, and Founder of Team Fastrax™ said, “We are excited to perform our American Flag jump at such a momentous game. We love performing at Ryan Field and can’t wait to see who wins this matchup.”
This performance of Team Fastrax™ is going to be dedicated to Army Sgt. Eric A. Fifer. According to the Military Times website, Sgt.
