    Flyover

    Does anybody know if we are going to have a flyover this year? I was disappointed that there was not one last year. If we have one this year I say we should do it with a b52 stealth bomber.

    Re: Flyover

    Don't we usually have one for the Iowa game? I think we should do it for that one or the Texas game.

    Not really. They usually incorporate training activities during the flyovers, and also consider the recruiting impact it has.

    Required flight hours can be counted. They have to fly anyway just as well cross a stadium too.

    So would you send our pilots into a combat zone without having flown since flight school? Just curious.

    I freaking love flyovers. Can't wait to see what they'll have tomorrow in Cincinnati.

    I hope when we do the plane gets a good 4-5 inches over the new scoreboard.

    Re: Flyover

    The choppers that flew over for the Army game in 2009 were pretty cool. Not as much of a thrill as jet fighters but still nice to see none the less.

    They had a stealth flyover at the Chiefs/Ravens playoff game this January. Pretty cool stuff especially when you are intoxicated and don't know its coming.

    Re: Flyover

    Yeah that B2 in KC was sick. I didn't like the choppers on the MNF game.. But you can't do much since it's dark. **** it's cool when it's just jets!

    Re: Flyover

    If there is a fly over at the Iowa game it will probably fly too low

    Re: Flyover

    In no way is a B52 stealth.

    B2 possibly?
