So people are mentioning purely fly-by's but what about demonstration teams at airshows who fly aerial maneuvers? (some such as the thunderbirds due by fly overs also). I can thin of the F-18 team, F-22 team, Thunderbirds, Blue Angels, etc. these teams actually practice a lot more than straight and level flight over a stadium not to mention they can be converted into a combat unit if needed. Are they un-necessary too?

How about the nfl just writes out a donation in the amount that it would cost for the flyovers to keep happening?

When did this place become the land of the imbeciles?

You point out basic fundamental things about how things work and you get attacked for it.

Let me rephrase this for the idiots who didn't get it the first time:

"Government has no wealth, government generates no wealth, so any wealth it expends it gets from another citizen."


I dare you to prove me wrong.

Well technically the taxpayers money comes from their employer which comes from their customers which comes from their employer which comes from their customers which comes from their employers which comes......
Like I said KMD...semantics you imbecile

If flyovers are training, the future of our armed strength in the world is in serious doubt...
