(VIDEO) Air Force Honor Guard Drill Team Tosses Bayonets At Jefferson Memorial

In this video, the Air Force Honor Guard Drill Team tosses bayonets at Jefferson Memorial during the Joint Service Drill Exhibition on April 12, 2014.

To be clear, they are tossing the bayonets while at the Jefferson Memorial, not actually hurling them at the memorial itself.

From the Air Force Honor Guard Drill Team site:

A standard USAF Drill Team performance features a professionally choreographed sequence of show-stopping weapon maneuvers, precise tosses, complex weapon exchanges, and a walk through the gauntlet of spinning weapons.

The Drill Team also provides an incredible four-person performance centered on a stationary drill commander, flanked by four team members who simultaneously hurl their 11-pound weapons over and around the commander — performing a sequence of events unmatched by any other professional military drill team.
