Football Flyover Cancelled

Sept. 8, 2005

LAWRENCE, KAN. — The Air National Guard has cancelled the flyover scheduled for Saturday just before kickoff of the KU-Appalachian State football game. The Air National Guard informed Kansas officials that the extremely high tempo of current operational events has forced the Air Force to place a moratorium on aircraft flyovers held in conjunction with sporting and other events through the end of September 30.

It is possible that the flyover could be rescheduled for a later date.
