A military plane is scheduled to fly over the University of Kansas at Saturday’s home football game, according to a news release Friday from KU.
One KC-135R military refueling aircraft, from the 155th Air Refueling Wing of the Nebraska Air National Guard based in Lincoln, is scheduled to fly over before the 2:30 p.m. kickoff of the game at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium.
The Jayhawks will host Kansas State for the Dillons Sunflower Showdown.
Unlike with the Oct. 5 flyover of F-16 jets at the KU-Oklahoma game, no practice flyovers are planned this time. For the Oct. 5 flyover, which included a practice flyover on Oct. 4, KU failed to notify the public of the occurrence and later apologized on Twitter, acknowledging that it had “dropped the ball.”
