Super Bowl Fly Over

Post by jsburger »

Way cool fly over. All three of the Air Force's heavy bombers, the B-52, the B-1 and the B-2.

It was very cool, but quick. Would have to replay it, but I was wondering if it was the B2 or if it could possibly have been a B21 prototype instead...

As far as I know there is no flying prototype of the B-21. It is not scheduled for deployment to the USAF until 26-27. There aren't any pictures of a physical airplane, only artist renditions. They do look like the B-2 however. Kind of like the B-52. There was every model from the B-52A through the B-52H. That is 8 versions of the same aircraft. This is not quite the same since the designation is different, B-2 vs B-21 but the air frame is VERY similar like the B-52.

Yeah, I wasn't sure, but boy that 1 second flyover was the most excitement that I have seen since the game started! Very predictable since then unfortunately.

Here's an article on the background of the coordination and timing needed to get it exactly right.

Personal I like the other flyovers of previous super bowls. Nothing like a F14 or F15 screaming across at deck level.
Watched the flyover then turned the TV to something else. Never watch Pro Football since they began disrespecting the flag, beating up on their women and started complaining they did not make enough.

College Football only for me! Now baseball, hockey and NASCAR are different stories!

Thanks for the link.

That was the first time all three bombers in the Air Force’s fleet have carried out such a flyover together.
