You might be able to talk to your meteorologist friend and get a pre pro-bowl weather report.

Then you can match it up and see how much it changes from the day of. You know, for scientific purposes.

One thing for sure, you won't get hypothermia. Even in shorts and a tshirt.

Where it belongs. A lot of memories of going to that game.

Beyond the messy people in the town where I'm at now I don't mind it so much. I mean the cops are REALLY corrupt, but eh. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Stays pretty warm around here, too. All this talk about pro-bowl and super bowl actually reminds me, I should probably try to dig out my bowling balls and go bowling sometime. I was pretty good at it one time. Maybe call up a few messy friends and see if they want to join me.

Lovely photo. P51 then P80 or F86?

Was the F4 Phantom the fighter of 50 years ago? That's kinda what I was thinking. Sidenote: Seen one actually parked in the private plane lot over at the airport where WW2 Weekend is held.

In order, P-51, F-86, F-22, P-47.

The F-4 was the premier fighter during Vietnam. There's actually one flying that belongs to a museum that they fly around for heritage flights and other events.

That's a good photo showing the body lines of the f-22 and 117. I see some similarities in the nose and cockpit angles although the f-22 is a much smoother design.

Heres the ultimate SB flyover:

Three B-1s in a triangle formation, 0.95 mach, middle plane pulls up hard over stadium while first 2 remain flat, goes inverted at 10,000, all 3 in full afterburner the whole time, shut the whole city down with pure amazingness.

Thats worth the price of admission.

at edwards air show they used to annually have the b1 Buzz the crowd at .9 mach at like 300' to rattle the crap out of everyone. it was awesome. felt like a deep bassy thumping. the hangers would quake when she did that. it was awesome you could always tell who had gone to the edwards air show the prior year by looking around the crowd when the b1 was doing her demonstration, because they would be the ones holding their hands over their ears....they knew what was coming next. the b1 would roar off past south base sonewhere, you'd loose sight of her and then a half a minute later sneak up behind the crowd gun it and come right in over head from the north. pure bad ass awesomeness every. single. time.

You should try standing next to the runway, where the nosewheel broke ground for a MITO on three jets one day.

How were the landing gear breaking ground during the minimum interval. Was there like some berm they were knicking right as they nosed up?

Also, 52's or Bones? Please say Bones that would be rad.

B-1s. One would start taking off, about halfway down the runway the next one would start rolling, then the third one. About the time the second was reaching the halfway point, the first was getting airborne and starting to climb. We were standing about 8500 feet down the runway, which was right where the nose would start to point up. They'd get airborne just past us.

Never plugged the ears, took it like a champ.

BTW, a top fuel dragster is MUCH MUCH loader than a B-1 bomber and if you don't plug, you'll lose your eardrums, and thats guaranteed.

Nothing on this earth has ever felt like a Top Fueler feels, its a totally different sensation, its literally bombs going off.

that's actually quite true. never stood near a top fueler dragster as it rips away from the tree. but I've stood next to the pits at Fontana when the formula 1 cars tore around the track. that was ear shattering and you coukd feel those motors vibrate the ground from 40 feet away when they are at idle.

buts still all of that is nothing to the raw power of a Bone as she buzzes the crowd.

You wouldn't get that now BASS. They're much quieter. So much quieter they're talking about how to make them louder again.

Not going to be a buff from where I work.

Well here's this . . . it isn't about the actual flyover and is more about the security that will be in place though:


On Tuesday, an Air Force Reserve tanker plane took off from March Air Reserve Base to practice refueling a California Air National Guard F-15 fighter jet that will be protecting the airspace above Levi Stadium in Santa Clara. CBS2’s Crystal Cruz rode along on the mission.
