stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
Saw one at All Star game in D Town.. Best fly over you can get..Nothing like it.. Best Bomber in the arsenal..Nice Video
Have seen at the Rose Bowl. I expected it to be impressive but when I saw it, it's actually more impressive than imagined
- cost to procure - just shy of a billion each
- 22 made. Only 20 left.
- most likely came from Whitman AFB in Missouri
- cost per flight hour estimated at $130k/ hr
- $ for flyovers comes from their annual training budget
-I'm not a military expert...but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night
Um, what happened to the other 2 planes? Did we forget where we parked them?
Also, the 22nd was an odd-ball. The eneded up appropriating the funds, many years later, for the prototype to be converted to a full use, combat ready craft.
All of the B2s operate out of Whiteman AFB in Missouri. At that operating cost and distance away, I was wondering what else was on their flightplan, if they did flyovers at any other games on Saturday. Spending the afternoon buzzing football stadiums has got to pretty entertaining. Much different than a "normal" mission.
One of the coolest things I've ever seen! The eagle flying in was awesome as well...
The Michigan difference...
I have to see one of those in person. Thanks for the post.
I've got nothing.......
C5A Galaxy is huge. Back when that plane was being developed, they did test flights over my neighborhood. So large it cast a shadow on the ground when it flew by. Loud, too. The B2 flyover was great. It's amazing what you can build with massive amounts of money and technology.
It's all John Navarre's fault.
accurate to me!
If an OSU fan divorces his wife are they still brother and sister?
that might be one of the funniest things I've ever seen. I've already copied it and forwarded to everyone I know.
Because it's true.

it was not loud as far as air crafts go !!
Thanks for posting..
Go Blue !!
With the bald eagle and the B2 there was so much America spirit pre game I was ready to enlist on the spot.
I'd seen pictures before but you don't get an appreciation for how thin the aircraft is until you see it coming st you.
but my favorite flyover was for the UConn game in 2010. I just love those old bombers, and I swear the pilot dipped down into the stadium then pulled back up again to miss the scoreboard. That was pretty sweet.
Awesome. I was hoping someone would post that (at least hoping people would bring up how cool it in fact was). I was obviously not there but heard earlier in the week the B-2 was "performing" the flyover. Only thing to top that would be a couple F-15 wingmen on either side of the Stealth bomber.
On a side note, here in Iowa, a pilot lost his life last weekend during an air show in the Quad City Air Show (flying and older soviet plane). I always have a huge respect to those flying these fascinating machines (and of course those protecting our country).
I know this is a "cool story bro" post, but I was flying from San Francisco to Detroit 4 years ago, sitting on the window seat of the plane on the left side and the captain got on the intercom and said "for those of you sitting on the left side of the plane, if you look out the window, you're going to see something you'll never forget in about 30 seconds."
About 30 seconds later a B-2 flew directly under our plane in a slow left turn. It's impossible to describe just how close it was, but I could actually see the plane carving its way through the air (if that makes any sense) while filling up my entire window. It was one of those moments that will forever be seared into my mind. Truly breathtaking.
Also, while we're on the general topic of awesomeness, I highy recommend seeing the F-22 in person as well. It's almost like a space ship.
last year and two F15's did a flyover and the ground shook. Pretty awesome.
It's pretty much impossible to beat an F-15 flyover. I still remember the Toledo Air Show about 10 years ago. During the F-15 demonstration, the pilot went straight up vertical for nearly 2 miles. It was like you could feel the air, feel gravity just say "screw it. I don't get paid enough to deal with this crap", and let it go.
Fighters in general will make a LOT of noise...full throttle, afterburners, etc.
F-16 at the Red Bull races on the Detroit River, doing the high pitch low speed demo...high noise/high coolness factor.

Thanks for the video--we couldn't see it due to the overhang on the west side, until it was well north of the stadium.
The eagle was pretty cool. I've seen quite a few bald eagles in my lifetime (my family lives on a flyway and the eagles follow the goose flocks south to pick off the injured). And yet they never fail to amaze me. If you promise not to tell anyone I'll confess to getting choked up at the one flying around the stadium on Saturday.
