Just starting this to keep track of what is buzzing who.

I'm lucky enough to live under the flight path that all aircraft take wen getting ready to do USAFA flyovers. Yesterday I was treated to an impromtu air show for what I can only assume was a pep rally for today's Utah game.

UH-60
CH-53
C-130
C-5
4x F-16s

Seeing the Herk and the Galaxy in formation was a real treat.

Also, is this a tradityion in other countries besides the US?

What times that game at? Those planes will pass over my school twice, since we're VERY close to TEB.

B-2's do the Kansas City Chiefs games but they're seen around here fairly often anyway. The next two games are nationally televised if you want to try to catch it. Tomorrows game is at Noon central.

The actual flyover for the game was pretty tame, just a B-52 and 2xF-16s.

MCIguy: KC gets some good ones, I was at a Royals game in the early 90's, and we were visited by 2 B-1s out of McConnell, 4 A-10s out of Richards Gebaur, and 6 CH-47s out of Olathe... Biggest one I've seen in person to date.

The game is at 1:00... 2 came in Friday afternoon, then they departed yesterday around noon to SWF to pick up two more, and returned about 90 minutes later... Keep a lookout for them to depart later (if you have a scanner they go by Yankee11 or Yankee22)

No such flyovers are allowed in Germany. After Ramstein even lots of things in airshows are prohibited.

Yeah, the Bones out of Wichita do the NASCAR races pretty often over on the Kansas side. I was in my kayak on the Kansas River one day when one came over about 500 AGL in full heaters flying upriver. It was loud, unexpected and awesome.  Smile

At the Washington Redskins/Dallas Cowboys game two weeks ago, we were treated to 4 F-22's out of Langley. The only thing more exciting was the wild ending to the game...

At the races at "The Indianapolis Motor Speeday" usually get F-16s from The Indiana Air National Guard, either from FWA or HUF. But there was one time we got a B-1, B-2 and a B-52 at the same time, now that was interesting, and loud.

2 F-18's flew over the UF-South Carolina game last week. This weekend two T-45 trainers flew over for the UF-Western Carolina game. We also had an F-14 and an F-18 fly over for homecoming...I would have loved to have seen the B-52's though!

Grand Prix of Long Beach has them most years...Honestly im way to drunk by that point to know what types they are. I can say it is fun to watch all the getto birds break the flock right before the flyover.

Here in Australia, the major sporting events get an F/A-18 solo act and usually at least one F-111 dump 'n' burn pass (afterburners lit, fuel dumps open-it's a real crowd-pleaser Smile) QF will do a low-and go in a 747-400 for the Grand Prix, and when our C-17's get operational they'll no doubt be trotted out as well.

I was there- VFA-34...decent flyby, unfortunately I was sitting up in the presiden't box and they flew right overhead, so they were coming right at us then dissapeared over the box. Those T-45's the other day were pretty loud too.

I wasn't at homecoming, you're sure there was an F-14 flying overhead? They were retired in early October.

I could definitely be wrong. I saw a pic of in in the Gainesville sun and it might have been a file photo. But I know a fly by took place for HC. I guess you can't always trust the media, esp. when it comes to aviation!  Smile The F-18's were awesome! My best friends brother was the lead pilot!

BTW, the KC Chiefs are on the premier of "Thursday Night Football" tomorrow night from Arrowhead. I'd imagine there will be a B-2 out of Whiteman for that.  Smile

If you are talking about the University of Florida homcoming (Oct 6-7), then there was no F-14 Tomcat involved with the fly-by. The last flight of the Tomcat was Oct 4, 2006. Unfortunately no Tomcats were spared for heritage type flights either

It is actually more to the East than Southeast. I have been there many of times.

Not really a sporting event, but we do have fly-overs during the Belgian National Holiday (21st of July) and these Vipers returned to the home-base (Kleine Brogel AFB) in this 11-ship formation:

Today at the Colorado-Nebraska game in Lincoln, NE, we had a flyover of 4 F-15's...not sure where they were from or staging out of, but the pilots showed up in the 4th quarter so I assume at the least they landed locally (LNK, maybe OMA or Offutt?)...

My guess is that the F-15s were from the 131st Fighter Wing stationed at St Louis - Lambert Field, MO. With inflight re-fueling, they would have been able to make the trip without any problem. Of course they could have been forward deployed to the Lincoln airport also.
