Flyover planned for Homecoming football game Oct. 1; practice run Sept. 30
LAWRENCE — Another flyover at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium is planned for the Oct. 1 Homecoming football game at the University of Kansas.
Approximately 10 minutes before the 2:30 p.m. kickoff of the KU-Iowa State football game, four T-38s, piloted by the 25th Training Squadron out of Vance Air Force Base in Enid, Oklahoma, will fly over the stadium from south to north.
The squadron will have a practice run of the flyover at 4:30 p.m. Sept. 30.
The last flyover was Sept. 2, when A-10C aircraft from Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona, flew over before the Jayhawks played the first game in their 4-0 season against Tennessee Tech.
