Rex Ryan to make tandem parachute jump with Army’s Golden Knights

Visitors to this year’s Niagara Falls air show can expect a “touch down” from Buffalo Bills Coach Rex Ryan.

Ryan plans to make a tandem parachute jump with the U.S. Army Golden Knights team.

The jump is scheduled for Friday at the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station, where the Thunder of Niagara Airshow will run through the weekend.

The Golden Knights have been around for more than 55 years. The team is one of three authorized Department of Defense aerial demonstration teams. The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and Navy Blue Angels are the others.

It’s the latest instance of Ryan making his presence known in the region after being hired by the team in January. The former New York Jets coach quickly won over Bills fans by painting his truck with the Bills logo and having beers with franchise icon Jim Kelly at a well-known local bar.
