Damn, beat to the punch.

Im ok with the flyovers, they provide a useful training purpose for air crews and would largely be done elsewhere otherwise. The idea that the US military can coordinate an attack to coincide with a musical flourish is actually good news for preventing unnecessary casualties, it just highlights how much attention to detail goes into these attacks.

All of thay being said, fark Joe Buck in particular.  I hope he never escapes this. He consistently denigrates any team that doesn't play on the east coast especially outside of football. He is the aluminum standard for shiat-tier sports broadcasting.

Uh, the flyover is just an excuse. Aviators need flight hours to maintain quals and flyovers don't ADD to that, they do flyovers instead of whatever boring shiat they would do otherwise. 

So, no, it doesn't waste taxpayer money.

Yeah, it does. I was a military aviator.

A flyover is a very simple timing exercise that you could practice in a simulator. Time spent doing that is time not spent flying on ranges with actual targets to go against and threats to defend against, not to mention additional hours in the air transiting to and from major metropolitan areas which are not, last I checked, anywhere near military training areas.

It means even Troy Boy can see through Trump's false tough-guy facade, and that he believes a Biden administration will focus the efforts of the Federal government on things that will have a real benefit to society.

It also means a couple of my Cowboy fan Trumper friends, who have had man crushes on Aikman since 1993, are going to have a tough time reconciling their beliefs, lol.

How can anyone say that ineffective training at taxpayer expense isn't a waste of taxpayer money, when all the experts are on record saying that flyovers are shiat for training and cost as much as any other use of a jet for that airtime?

I can't believe I'm saying this... BUT I AGREE WITH JOE BUCK! Oh God I need to shower.

Time spent doing that is time not spent flying on ranges with actual targets to go against and threats to defend against, not to mention additional hours in the air transiting to and from major metropolitan areas which are not, last I checked, anywhere near military training areas.

Simulator time does count towards training time but not towards flying hours. So as long as these flyovers come at the expense of those budgeted flying hours it is not an additional expense to the taxpayer.


"Military officials say the fly-bys boost recruiting efforts and give Americans an opportunity to see their aircraft in action. Officials also insist that flyovers don't cost taxpayers any additional money because each flyover counts as a pre-budgeted training flight.
"Baloney," said Winslow Wheeler, an analyst with the Center for Defense Information in Washington, D.C. "It's atrocious training. They're flying from Point A to Point B. They're doing a couple of sort of low-altitude passes over the events and they go home. That's what pilots call 'converting gas to noise.' "

My favorite is when the broadcast has "blimp coverage" in a domed stadium. They'll show shots from the blimp...of the roof.

I think Troy's analysis here is incorrect.  Flyovers at NFL games and other major sporting events seem to be a bipartisan act.  They will continue regardless of the election outcome.

A lot of people don't get that, no matter how many times you repeat it. I remember many a year where the leadership canceled flight after flight for months to make sure there was enough fuel to make it through to the end of the fiscal year only to have three lines every day in the last month of the fiscal year to make sure they used it all when they miscalculated.

If they're going to fly, and they are, where they fly to is pretty much irrelevant. That won't change if Biden wins. It was very interesting learning their political leanings, though. Troy's popularity in Texas just hit the wall, and Joe Buck may have gained a few fans.
