Fighter Jet Fly-by Question

Mon Nov 06, 2006 1:37 pm

I was at the Bears/Dolphins game this Sunday and right after the national anthem 4 fighter jets flew over the stadium. It was sweet! But, anyways, I'm not good with identifying military aircraft. I was wondering if anyone knew what type of aircraft these where and what AFB they came from. They came from the south and flew over the stadium to the north and then banked right out over Lake Michigan, if that helps.

F-16 Vipers. Hard to tell which unit, but there are a few ANG units in the region that operate them. Could be the 183rd (Illinois ANG) or the 122nd out of Ft. Wayne.

Could also have been the WI ANG from Madison. They fly F-16s.
