  • Iowa Flyover Pilots being punished

    I didn't notice/hear anything about this during the season

    The Air Force says six pilots who participated in a spectacular flyover before an Iowa football game have been disciplined for flying too low and too fast. The lead pilot is giving up his right to fly military aircraft.

    The Air Force says the four Talon T-38 Trainer jets flew just 16 feet above the stadium's press box when they wowed 70,000 fans inside Kinnick Stadium before Iowa hosted Ohio State on Nov. 20.

            1. Who cares? They didn't hit anything. You don't have to worry about tall buildings around there in Iowa. The entire point of a flyover is to be low and loud. They did it. No one wants to see a flyover with the planes a mile over the stadium.
            2. 6 pilots? There was only 4 planes.

              there are 2 seats in each jet. Maybe they had navigators.

                  T-38. T is for Trainer. two planes had 2 guys, two planes had 1 guy = CHIPPYMATHS.

                    Call me grumpylegs, but I think flyovers for sporting events are a waste of money and more needless nationalism.

                      It definitely is and I agree with you. However they are fucking awesome when you're there.

                        No, there were 6 planes. Two of them were the new ultra invisible stealth jets not yet know to the public.
