Aggies Among F-22 and F-15C Pilots For A&M Vs. Alabama Game

Susan "Sue" Owen '94 October 5, 2021 1:03 PM updated: October 11, 2021 8:17 AM

Aggies are among the pilots for Saturday’s flyover of four fighter jets at the Alabama game: two F-22 Raptors and two F-15C Eagles.

The Association of Former Students provides support for gameday flyovers and Midnight Yell, and coordinates events to bring Aggies together such as Class Reunions, Young Alumni Weekend and, at away games, Yell Practice and free All-Aggie Tailgates.

Showcasing two generations of U.S. fighters, the F-15Cs are from the 159th Fighter Wing of the Louisiana Air National Guard based in New Orleans, and the F-22 Raptors are from the U.S. Air Force’s 325th Fighter Wing at Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida.

Pilots for Oct. 9:

  • Col. John “Lobo” Echols
  • Col. Daniel “Lager” Lehoski 00
  • Lt. Col. John “Drag” Hensz 00
  • Lt. Col. David “Ripper” Anderson 01
  • Lt. Col. Cody “Viking” Clark
