IMPERIAL — The Royal Air Force Falcons parachute display team members showed the Imperial High School varsity soccer squad how soccer is played in their country during an exhibition match Tuesday.
The Falcons were to parachute onto the soccer field and then engage in the soccer match, but high winds resulted in the jump being canceled.
Falcons Flight Lt. Jack Dilley said the Falcons were disappointed about not being able to jump but were looking forward to the soccer match.
Dilley said the idea for the jump came when Imperial High Parent Teacher Association members asked if the team could do a demonstration jump for the school. They then came up with the idea of a jump followed by a soccer match.
