    Yup. Saw them at 10:57 flying over the Iowa river, approaching stadium from the north. Really low

    This was taken by a photographer who was at the same elevation. So the plane was sideways.

    Sorry I couldn't get a pic, was driving at the time. Just looked over and there were two fighters cruising by. Then the roar hit

    Iowa had a super low flyover in 2010 where the pilot lost their wings, sort of like ours.

    I bet there will be video online

    On your Twi page, hit copy link. Then paste the twee as media here.

    Good job!

    Not an inverted dive over a MIG-28, so not impressed

    j/k. Super cool!

    He probably had a GT t-shirt on underneath his flight suit.

    If you see the tall guy on the left when you go out tonight, buy him a beer. I'll pay you back. He's a fellow GT grad.
