Flyovers are cool — wicked cool, in fact. But you know, you want to keep your career alive, too.
So two weeks ago, Air Force T-38 Talon pilots do a flyover before the Ohio State-at-Iowa game. Fair enough, happens all the time. And a nice treat for one of the pilots, a Hawkeyes fan who says he’s close to retirement.

I’m no flyover expert, but to me that seemed pretty low. And it comes on the heels of last year’s Navy flyover at a Georgia Tech game by some Yellow Jacket alumni (see below).
