    Wouldn't it be awesome if they'd do this more than once a year? Love the fly overs!!!

    At our football camp in Saskatchewan we had the training jets buzz the field a few times. It was great! Kids and parents loved it and this was only a non-contact camp!

    Sometimes also the hair on the top of my head.

    Depends upon their altitude and speed...;)

    Video quality is shameful this year as I bitched out and only brought my iPhone instead of my camera (not that the camera is anything special to begin with, it's ~4 years old).

    TSN actually caught it REALLY good this year, unlike previous years. I was impressed.

    Edit: Check the timing out this year. It was absolutely perfect. Literally as soon as the anthem ends the jet flies over. :)

    The Ticats had the fly over twice.... With perfect timing as well after the anthem and with the first ever kickoff in the new THF .... It was awesome

    Loved the second fly-over when the pilot waggled his wings! I sit right beside the TSN camera that took the shots - he was concerned about a guy who was waving a big Stamps flag right where the jet was going to appear. The flag waver was nice enough to lower the flag so the cameraman could get that great flyby. Well done Carmen!

    Going to Edmonchuck on Saturday for the rematch - I wonder if they'll have the helicopter fly-over like a couple of years ago. Somewhat of a letdown compared to the jets.

    And I guess there are a few good things about an open stadium!
