Flyover At Marlins Stadium On 4/4 Info Requested

Thu Apr 05, 2012 12:56 pm

I was at the innagural Miami Marlins game last night and it featured a very impressive flyover. Annoyingly, it was never announced which aircraft were used or where they were based. They looked to me like Air Force (or ANG) F-16s but I couldn't be sure. Does anyone know?

I didn't make it to the game but I saw video of the flyover.
I'd bet good money it was the 482'd Fighter Wing "The Mako's" based out of Homestead ARB just 22 miles away from the Ball Park. They operate the F-16C/D.

Found this link on yahoo sports.

The caption says the F-16's were indeed from Homestead
