Super Bowl Xlviii Flyover

Mon Jan 27, 2014 7:00 pm

Hi,

Is there going to be a flyover during the National Anthem at MetLife Stadium this weekend? Does anyone know who would make the pass this year?

Thanks!

Cheers

With the cold weather we have been having in the Northeast,I would say a LC-130 from the 109th Airlift Wing would be appropriate

Supposed to be some Apaches I believe. If I am to believe a local radio caller who was proud to say that his son was going to be a pilot for the flyover. Not sure of a reason someone would lie about that.

A flight of Apaches overflew the Army-Navy game in December. I was somewhat surprised at how quiet they were... but maybe it was because they were preceded by F/A-18s.

That's the nice thing about outdoor stadiums, the crowd actually gets to see the flyover.

As far as the temps, suck it up, If they can play the Grey Cup outside you can deal with the Super Bowl!

They should send the special livery 747-8F that Boeing rolled out today.  SEA Seahawks 747-8 (Pictures) (by SXDFC Jan 29 2014 in Civil Aviation)

Interesting.

I've been told those are significantly louder than Apaches. I've heard them, but only from long distance.

Ah, beat me to it. I was just coming over to say that the 101st Airborne Division's Facebook account posted photos of the preparations for the fly-over. Cool stuff.

What models were your source referencing? UH-60A, L, and M all have different engine exhaust methods and different main blades. And are we talking early or later AH-64's? Please cite your source and elaborate.. Regards,

Jeez....   

It's just conversation. I don't quiz my friends in the military on their equipment down to the smallest details. It's weird to do that. If it comes up, it comes up if they want to bring it up, but I don't press, "Are you flying a UH-60L? And M? What kind of Apache are you comparing it against?"

I wrenched on just about every model of H-60 the US NAVY bought.
The 'romeo' is the only one I never touched.
So- for the record- that'd be SH-60B, SH-60F, HH-60H, and MH-60S.

But I have seen more then a few MH-60Ss in the pattern, as well as HH-60Js that visited NAS North Island and NS Mayport during my tours at both bases.
They all sounded the same to me.

Dissapointed in the flyby last night.

It sounded cool but Army CARC paint is designed not be seen when it is dark out.....so you could only see the anti-collision lights.

Next time they do it they need to do it while the sun is still out.

60 driver here, I couldn't tell you the difference in sound between a A, L or M, and frankly, the only way I can differentiate between the A/L and the M are the wing tips on the M. If you can tell the difference in noise between an A/L and M model you are some kind of superhuman.

Also, worth noting that the 64 and 60 have practically the same engine, similar sized rotor systems and similar gross weights. They aren't going to sound so different versus, say, the sound difference between a Lakota, Chinook or Kiowa.

Thank you! I've heard many different models of the Blackhawk and it would surprise me to find someone who could tell them apart by sound alone. And the Apache, while slightly different sounding, is similar.
