In past years the Super Bowl stage has been used for some great demonstrations of US air power. I wonder if this year, being the 50th, will be one of
the more outstanding years for aviation enthusiasts. Is there a place where a schedule is listed? Is anyone in the know leaking information about
which aircraft will be participating this year? Are we going to see new technology unveiled for large scale public consumption such as during the 2006
(I think that was the year) game where F-22 Raptors performed the fly over to the Star Spangled Banner and the Academy Choirs? Or is it going to be
run of the mill technology and performances as listed on a couple sites that is said to include paratroopers and 4 Harrier jets? Maybe they are just
I hope to see something exciting this year after all the talk on some of the aviation forums here on ATS, and elsewhere, that speculated about an
unveiling of a new black project.
So does anyone have any info? In breadcrumbs to offer out to those of us wondering what we may see during the pregame or Half time? Do tell, do tell .
A locally famous DJ in Honolulu known for pulling pranks did something like that one day. He was playing reports of a B-2 flying past Waikiki one
morning, and had dozens of calls from people wanting to know where it was. After a while he said "You can't see it. It's stealth!"

Surprising to some of you, there have been mysterious, (UFO-like) craft that have done flybys at air shows. --Yes, some have been documented! On
something more formal such as the Super Bowl, I would like to think that Uncle could produce a black triangle. --Then they could disallow it being
an actual craft because it didn't make any noise. That it was all an illusion or mass hysteria.
Last time I saw a flyover I was at a Seahawks game in Seattle. It was very very foggy. At exactly the right time three Chinooks flew over at about
200' from the south and literally parted the fog with their passage. It was awesome.
An hour or so later in mid-game the fog lifted and right to the north, like a block or two, literally a few yards away, Seattle's tall buildings
popped into view. So those chopper jockeys flew into the fog over the stadium and made an immediate emergency hard left to avoid the buildings and get
over Puget Sound. I'm sure they had radar and all that, but Jesus! That took some precision flying.
P.S. NEVER go a game there without ear protection. The sound is so loud that it physically hurts.
