A flyover is planned as the Jayhawks open their football season Friday evening with a game against the Golden Eagles of Tennessee Tech.


A-10C aircraft will fly over David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium approximately 10 minutes before kickoff, which is set for 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 2.

“The flyover will be conducted by the United States Air Force A-10C Demonstration Team out of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona,” according to a KU news release Thursday.

“The A-10s will be piloted by Maj. Haden Fullam and Capt. Joel Russo.”

The demonstration team travels to airshows across the country “to showcase the unique combat capabilities of the A-10 ‘Warthog,'” according to its website. Learn more about the team and the aircraft at this link.
