America is getting ready for the Super Bowl. Flyovers before football games are becoming part of our nation’s past time.
We’ve posted before about some of the craziest flyovers that we’ve seen. A few of the flyovers we highlighted in the past were so low and so crazy that a few military pilots lost their wings. That’s not good or safe either! Since then though, there have been a number of flyovers that have been equally unique and awe inspiring. And the best part is that none of them were potentially unsafe or callous. A win for all. Check out our latest list of 5 Kick ass football flyovers as we celebrate Super Bowl 54 weekend.
The Largest NFL Flyover Ever
We’ve posted some amazing videos of flyovers. The Thunderbirds flying over the Super Bowl is always a treat. And back in 2016, we posted a story about the Blue Angels flying over Super Bowl 50 that was down right impressive. As amazing as fast jets flying over a game can be, this particular video is downright amazing.
Back in 2013, the Chiefs hosted a civilian aircraft flyover in support of the cure for Breast Cancer. The flyover was an attempt to break the world record for most aircraft to flyover over a stadium.
In the end, 42 aircraft flew over at precisely the end of the Star Spangled Banner. According to an article at Fox 4 Kansas City, aircraft from 17 states and the District of Columbia participated. It’s an unbelievable sight. You have to see it. Our only regret is that we wish we saw it live.
Rockin’ Guitar Solo and a Huge C-17 equals America
Football and flyovers. There’s nothing better to symbolize America, right? Well, this flyover is an attempt to one-up perfection. Guitar soloist Aidan Fisher is a 17 year old and one amazing guitar player. He played the national anthem solo in front of over 60,000 cheering fans at Cleveland Browns’ First Energy Stadium.
Precisely at the end of his unique rendition of the National Anthem, the massive C-17 flew over playing a perfect symphony to his final notes. If this doesn’t get you psyched for football…nothing will.
Unfortunately, Aidan’s killer riff didn’t result in a Browns victory. They lost to the Seahawks 32-28 in front of their home crowd..
