Saying goodbye to military flyovers in the USA

NBC in the states is reporting that military flyovers at American sporting events are about to become a thing of the past thanks to the “sequester” budget cuts with a March 10 flyover at the NASCAR races in Las Vegas being the last one scheduled:

As you can imagine, the video segment posted on Yahoo! sports about cutting military flyovers has attracted a number of entertaining comments (more than 4,000 and counting), with some of the most popular comments right now being:

And yet we will send $1 billion and new F16s to Egypt, a country that hates us. Idiotic.

And:

Gosh, how many years did it take the brain child’s in DC to figure this out. Now, time to cut back on all the wasted "flyovers" of Air Force 1 too.

And:

What’s next? Ending the Space Shuttle Program? Oh … wait. At least we will always keep minting pennies which cost the govt 2 cents to make.

So it looks like Americans will have to travel to Britain to see military flyovers at special British events!
