The Super Bowl Flyover you didn’t see yesterday filmed from a CH-47 helicopter

It went almost unnoticed, but Super Bowl featured a U.S. Army helicopter flyover.

NFL Super Bowl XLVIII game between Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos game was opened by a flyover performed by AH-64D Apache, UH-60M Black Hawk and CH-47F Chinook choppers from 101st Combat Aviation Brigade.

Unfortunately, the flyover was barely visible from the ground and not aired by FOX TV.
