Description


F-16s of the 115th Fighter Wing of the Wisconsin Air National Guard, based in Madison, Wisconsin, fly over the bronze statue of Earl “Curly” Lambeau and the legendary football stadium that bears his name, Lambeau Field. This fly-over occurred at the end of the national anthem prior to the game on that day. The late Reggie White’s No. 92 was officially retired in a half-time ceremony at this game.

You probably cannot fully appreciate this image if you have never witnessed one of these fly-overs first hand (I suppose it also helps if you are a Packer fan). These jets are so fast that if you do not see them coming before you hear them, you will have pretty much missed them. They say that the pilots make it back to Madison (140 miles away)in time to see the opening kickoff on TV.
