This weekend's home game flyover will feature two F-16 Vipers and two F-35 Lightning IIs from the 56th Fighter Wing out of Luke Air Force Base, Arizona. 

The F-16 Viper is a highly maneuverable, compact, multi-role fighter, and the F-35 Lightning II is the U.S. Air Force's latest fifth-generation fighter. 

This Saturday's personnel will include:

The aircraft will approach from the south at the conclusion of the national anthem.
