The 101st Airborne Division of the Army has reportedly launched an inquiry into the “planning and execution” of a helicopter flyover during a Tennessee Titans game earlier this year. Per The Spun...

The flyover in question took place prior to the Titans home game against the New Orleans Saints on Nov. 14 at Nissan Stadium in Nashville. Video captured multiple helicopters from the 101st Airborne Division’s Combat Aviation Brigade proceeding over the stadium at an extremely low altitude that seemingly put them in close enough proximity to fans to warrant concern.

An investigation from Nashville’s NewsChannel 5 released this past Monday brought up scrutiny of the operation. The Federal Aviation Administration will now reportedly review the incident to see whether the flyover violated any aviation rules, according to the Army Times.

Army spokesperson Lt. Col. Terence Kelley confirmed that the 101st Airborne Division’s commanding general, Maj. Gen. Joseph McGee, “has directed [a] preliminary inquiry into this event”, per the Times.
Here’s an overhead video of the flyover in question, posted on the Tennessee Titans Twitter account on Nov. 16...

I’ve seen Fighter jets fly through the stadium that lie a decade ago. It’s not new.

Gonna get a slap on the hand for that. It’s in the media domain now so they have to respond. Pilot will get an unofficial “attaboy”

The pilot was probably applying mascara and just forgot to monitor altitude.

Same. It was awesome. But I remember thinking at the time, damn, those things are coming in pretty low.

Did you not hear that hissing sound? They were releasing Covid-19 bio-weapon particles.

I was at the game and the flyover was awesome but it was definitely the closest I've ever seen. 3 helicopters flew through the stadium. Not above the stadium. Very cool

Very Biden Administration-ish of the 101st.

My son is doing the flyover for the Army Navy game this weekend. I expect they just got notified not to go to low. We will see if they give a frick. The pilots he flies with are the best of the best and basically untouchable. He will watch a CW4 or 5 tell a regular army colonel to pound sand and walk away unscathed.

That was a fly "through". Might have filed the wrong doc.

Most surprising of all was that there were enough fans at a Titans game for this situation to be dangerous.
