U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY --

Various Air Force aircraft are scheduled to perform aerial flyovers over Air Force Academy, Nov. 3-4.

During the noon meal formation Nov. 3, there will be a close air support demonstration, which is expected to include Joint Terminal Attack Controllers on the Academy’s Terrazzo directing flyovers by an A-10 Thunderbolt II and F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft to mimic CAS applications used in modern conflicts.

The showcase will encompass simulated munition demonstrations, which will create additional noise, to enhance the realism of the scenario.

During the pre-game festivities leading up to kick-off for the Air Force versus Army football game Nov. 4, there will be multiple flyovers.

Scheduled are an A-10 Thunderbolt II, U-2 Dragon Lady, F-16 Fighting Falcon and a B-1 Lancer over Falcon Stadium.

Official game time kick-off is scheduled for 1:32 p.m. (MST).

Residents in communities surrounding the Air Force Academy can expect increased air traffic and noise during this time period.
