LewPBlog:Ever wonder what an NFL game flyover looks like from up there?

Most days here we’re talking about goofy stuff in sports and things outside the sanity of decent living.

Like the Chicagoan currently inhabiting the White House with his mother-in-law while teaching America about his adopted hometown’s chronic style of political ops. We’re all sorry about that.

Anyway, today we’re doing something completely different.

It’s Sunday, which means the National Football League. And it’s December, which means the playoffs are shaping up.

We’re not writing about the games though. We’re writing about the show biz side of those games.

Do you like those military jet flyovers right at the end of the National Anthem? So do we! Who doesn’t? Taking a few seconds’ pride in our* wonderful military women and men using the gear we all helped pay for.* And what better place for it than an NFL stadium called Soldier Field?

Well, have you ever wondered what it’s like to be in the jets flying over, looking down at a stadium-full of people looking up?

So have we. Think of this as a school field trip.

Hearty thanks to a good friend in Chicago for tipping us to this video from inside an NFL Game Day military jet flyover. We’ve watched this baby about 40 times. (Full-screen, of course.)

ENJOY!
