BOSTON (CBS) – The Navy’s “Leap Frogs” Parachute Team landed on the Boston Common on Monday.

Hundreds cheered as the team comprised of Navy SEALs jumped from over 12,000 feet.

One SEAL had a giant American flag attached to his chute. The jumpers reach speeds of 120 mph during free-fall and can go as fast as 180 mph.

Once on firm ground, the Leap Frogs answered questions and signed autographs.

“It’s awesome,” says Navy SEAL Brad Woodard. “The coolest part is when you’re flying in and you see all the people who came out to support the military and the Navy in general, it’s absolutely awesome.”

The Leap Frogs jump again on Tuesday morning at 10:00AM at Puopolo Park, 2:00 PM at the Boston Common and July 4 at 12:00 PM at Fan Pier.
