Yesterday, 10/29, at the Chicago Bears-Carolina Panthers NFL game there was a flyover of either 2 F-15s or 2 F-18s. Unfortunately I missed it as we were not in our seats yet and saw them briefly through the concourse openings at Soldier Field. Anybody know which they were, F-15 or F-18 and from where? I asked co-workers who watched the game on TV and they said that the anthem and flyover was not televised. Later in the game the pilots were introduced on the field, but there was too much noise and I was also talking to my brother at the time, so I missed the announcement.

They were US Navy F/A-18C Hornets. Not sure of the unit, though.

Thanks. Love watching the fighter jets and they are a rare treat in Chicago, except for when the President is in town and a GA pilot strays to where he/she shouldn't be.
