This year’s Super Bowl XLVII in N.J. will have its usual military flyover. The U.S Air Force did a practice run on Wednesday in preparation for Super Bowl XLVII along the Hudson River in the Bronx, New York. It included two F-16s, a Cessna Citation 550 and a HU-60 Helicopter. The Super Bowl pre-game should be spectacular and really get fans revved up by starting the big game with this military flyover.
It’s become a tradition to start the game with the thundering roar of military jets like F-16s, rushing by overhead. Can you name the one Super Bowl in history that did not include a military flyover?
Answer: Super Bowl I, in 1967.
Since this will be the first Super Bowl played in the New York/New Jersey area, there’s tight security including a ten mile no-fly zone that F-16s will patrol. So enjoy this fun, competitive annual tradition and let us know who you are rooting for!
