at least it's not just us?
cool as hell
The leadership of Michigan's truly outstanding Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC) Unit has been hard at work creating some exciting events for the impending football season.
The Professor of Naval Science, CAPT Rick (Hoover) Vanden Heuvel and his Operations Officer, CDR Chris Gordon (Class of '90) have been coordinating with various units to schedule flyovers. With the caveat that there may be last minute adjustments and that the FAA approval process always has the potential to put the kibosh on things, here is the current schedule:
- 4 Sep vs. UConn - Yankee Air Museum B-25 Mitchell (pre-game stadium rededication ribbon-cutting) and Michigan Air National Guard A-10s (National Anthem).
- 9 Oct vs. MSU - Army 101st Airborne Parachute Demo (pre-game). The plan is for the 101st to parachute from a C-130 (squadron TBD) and land on the Michigan Stadium field prior to the band taking the field.
- 6 Nov vs. Illinois (Military Day with Wounded Warrior Project and Care Package Drive) - USAF F-16s (National Anthem)
The possibility exists for additional events at the Wisconsin game and The Big Chill. I'll keep you posted of additions, deletions or modifications.
