A flyover is planned Saturday afternoon ahead of kickoff as the Jayhawks (4-0) take on the Iowa State Cyclones (3-1) in KU’s homecoming game.


Four T-38 aircraft piloted by the 25th Training Squadron out of Vance Air Force Base in Enid, Oklahoma, will fly south to north over David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium, according to a KU news release Thursday.

The flyover will be about 10 minutes before the 2:30 p.m. kickoff Saturday, Oct. 1. The squadron will also have a practice run at 4:30 p.m. Friday, according to the release.

Other homecoming festivities will include the inaugural Rock Chalk Block Party. That’s set to begin with games and activities at 5:30 p.m. Friday in the 1000 block of Massachusetts Street (between 10th and 11th streets). The free event will include a KU pep rally starting around 7:50, and country artist Chris Lane will perform at 8:15 p.m.
