Two U.S. Air Force MC-130J Commando II aircraft will perform a ceremonial flyover during the National Anthem performance before the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens football game Dec. 17, 2022, over the FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio.
“The MC-130J is a special operations staple, showing us what it means to go any place, anytime, anywhere,” said U.S. Air Force Col. Terence G. Taylor, 27th Special Operations Wing commander. “We are excited to showcase this specialized aircraft and grateful for the opportunity to inspire the people of Cleveland.”
U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. John Sisler and U.S. Air Force Capt. Justin Vagts from the 6th Special Operations Squadron at Cannon Air Force Base, N.M. will pilot the two MC-130Js.
Flying demonstrations like this are part of the U.S. Air Force aerial events program that is designed to incorporate training activities with aerial demonstrations. These events also help foster unit morale and contribute to community support.
