Two Aggie pilots will fly F-35A fighters over Kyle Field before Saturday's football game vs. Vanderbilt. The flyover, set for 15 minutes before kickoff, is presented by the U.S. Air Force's 56th Fighter Wing out of Luke Air Force Base, Arizona. The F-35A Lightning II is the Air Force’s newest, fifth-generation fighter.
Donors to The Association of Former Students proudly help provide hotel accommodations for pilots and crew!
In addition, four dedicated maintenance professionals will accompany the pilots, making this trip to Aggieland possible:
This gameday in Aggieland incorporates many changes, as the Texas A&M community continues to work together to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Find details on gameday events and Kyle Field operations at gameday.12thMan.com/football and Association operations at tx.ag/gameday.
The Association is proud to support flyovers as a small way to thank the crews and to contribute to this part of the football gameday experience.
