Grizzly Football Game To Feature MANG C-130 Flyover [YouTube]
Saturday's football game between the Montana Grizzlies and the Eastern Washington Eagles will feature a flyover from the Montana Air National Guard with a C-130 transport aircraft.
Senior Airman William Anderson said the aircraft will be flying in from Great Falls.
"The aircraft is a C-130 Hercules, H-model, and it carries cargo and personnel pretty much all over the world," Anderson said. "We'll be in New Zealand, the Virgin Islands and Hawaii. We're pretty excited to be a part of this mission and we'd love to have anyone with an interest in joining the Air National Guard come to the game and meet with our staff."
Anderson said the C-130 will make a low-level pass over the stadium, much the same as the jet tanker from Neptune Aviation in a recent game.
"I believe it's going to be just a couple of thousand feet above Washington Grizzly Stadium," he said.
The game will also be military appreciation day, as well as senior day. Fans are also asked to bring cans of perishable good for the 'Can the Cats' competition.
