Iowa flyover might have been a "Bit" too low....

((ht: kfor-tv))

It appears as though we have a bit of a flyover controversy brewing out in the Midwest. Apparently a pair of Vance Air Force base in Oklahoma were doing a flyover before the Ohio State/Iowa game last month.

They allegedly flew a bit too low. The flight deck was supposed to be 1000 feet, according to video they looked a little bit lower than that. The base is investigating.

This is not the 1st time something like this has happened. We reported in March about a flyover at the 2009 Georgia/Georgia Tech game. Here is the story.

In that incident, the two pilots, Navy pilots, were grounded and eventually reassigned. We don't know what will happen in the Iowa incident, but it is an interesting parallel.

Check out the TV Story/Video from WHO-TV in Des Moines and judge for yourself.
