Keep your eyes peeled on Sunday as, weather permitting, the world renowned Red Devils will be dropping in with the match ball for the game against Bath (kick off 3:30pm).
The Parachute Regiment Freefall Team 'The Red Devils' was formed in 1964 to promote the Army's elite Parachute Regiment in support of recruitment.
Every member of the team is a serving soldier from one of the Regiment's three full-time Battalions:1, 2 & 3 PARA - with each having seen active service in either The Falklands, Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan or Iraq.
Since 1979 The Red Devils has been firmly established as the British Army's official parachute display team and its members are widely acknowledged as among the best display parachutists in the world. Every year the team carry out more than 100 spectacular parachute displays at public events worldwide promoting The British Army and The Parachute Regiment ('The Paras').
In addition to displays, the Red Devils also help to raise over £100,000 for charity each year by carrying out Tandem Skydives with members of the public.
A classic Red Devils parachute display will see up to six team members jumping from an altitude of up to 10,000ft. Trailing smoke to demonstrate their speed and movement, the highly-skilled skydivers will freefall at speeds of up to 120mph, before deploying their parachutes.
Once safely under canopy, team members will demonstrate breathtaking, high-speed "Swoop" landings and spectacular "Canopy Formations" - both unique to parachute displays in the UK.
