I was in the South end zone during the flyover. One person nearby commented "They were too low." Regardless, it was impressive and pumped up the fans

My husband just completed training at Vance. They are required to do "cross country" flights for the students as training and for the IP's to keep their hours in line for regulations. I am so impressed at the precision and timing! Only our AF!!!

I'm in the Air Force and work on planes so i can tell you that every flyover that we do is flown within a training mission. The expense of the flyover is already set aside in the budget for pilot training. So stop complaining and GO HAWKS!!!!!

Yes America, the republicans have returned.

What's the carbon footprint for a flyover?

Neal says ... on Monday, Nov 22 at 8:44 AM

Loyalty? What's loyalty got to do with it? Not everybody who lives in Iowa is a Hawkeye fan, CRCrane65.

My son and three friends, making the trip from Ohio, were at the game and enjoyed the Buckeyes' victory. But what did he want to talk about? The flyover!!! Awesome!

Joyce; You said it right! Thank God there are still patriotic Americans like you still left in America. God Bless al of our troops. To Neal; I hated football until I moved to Iowa and my daughter turned me into a Hawk fan. Where is your loyality?

Awesome! God Bless America and the military might that protects us.

The cost of the Fly by is nothing if one kid in the stands aspires to fly a plane now. Mr. X it cost about the same as Yes we Can flying all over the country to try and save his platforms. Like it of Leave it...enough said

Folks that sound right there is the Sound of Freedom!

Joyce says ... on Sunday, Nov 21 at 11:02 PM

Who cares what it cost....the cost of those flights doesn't even compare to the what a family loses if a loved one dies serving. Those men and women are serving this country and giving you the freedom to complain about something like this!

All Flyovers are conducted in part with a training mission that the pilots fly. The pilots go and fly the training mission, then do the flyover on the return to base or flyover then train.T-38s are one of the most economical fuel based planes in USAF

Fairweather fans, too.

Anonymous says ... on Sunday, Nov 21 at 8:07 PM

Just because they didn't win doesnt mean they didn't do a good job. A lot of people expected Ohio to kill Iowa and that just wasn't the case. Fareweather fans!

Neal says ... on Sunday, Nov 21 at 7:38 PM

"Raw power and speed." There's something Hawkeye fans didn't see on the field Saturday.

Craig says ... on Sunday, Nov 21 at 6:44 PM

Fantastic. Raw power and speed.

Anne says ... on Sunday, Nov 21 at 6:28 PM

I was in the west stands and it was awesome! I loved that they introduced the pilots at halftime and most of them had Iowa t-shirts on. It was really cool.

Orville says ... on Sunday, Nov 21 at 6:26 PM

Just because it was the final mission for a pilot doesn't mean it didn't cost anything.

Mr, X says ... on Sunday, Nov 21 at 5:45 PM

Another waste of our tax dollars at work. thanks Uncle Sam. So how much did all of this cost us? Yes we want to know. It is your responsability to tell us just how much of our money you are wasting. How about less fly overs and reduced taxes.

Hey! says ... on Sunday, Nov 21 at 5:32 PM

That is Amazing!

Sammy Davis says ... on Sunday, Nov 21 at 4:48 PM

There is no cost for the Fly-Over. This was the final mission of one of the pilots.

Curious George says ... on Sunday, Nov 21 at 4:39 PM

Anyone know what a stadium flyover costs ??

Benny says ... on Sunday, Nov 21 at 4:23 PM

They were just inches over the goal post. A lot of inches.

John says ... on Sunday, Nov 21 at 2:52 PM

It was awesome. It looked like they were just inches above the goal post. I was there, it was the best part of the game!
