Among the most loved traditions of the National Football League Super Bowl Game, there’s the pre-game flyover armed forces aircraft.
The National Anthem comes to it’s final lines, and the planes, either a single bomber, a fighter jet flight, helicopter formation, or one of the display teams streak over the stadium. Flyovers are always a special sight.
As you prepare for the NFL Super Bowl XLVIII Seattle Seahawks vs Denver Broncos game (that will feature an helicopter flyover with AH-64D Apache, UH-60M Black Hawk and CH-47F Chinook choppers from 101st Combat Aviation Brigade), here’s an interesting video aired by the NFL Network with interesting details about the planning and execution of such events, including clips shot at lot of stadiums.
