Listen my friend,

Some of us just love to visit the airport and oogle them in person and perhaps take a few photos!

Dammit!

Haha, I know, I know. Your photos are fantastic so I would definitely prefer they stop at the airport for that reason alone. Maybe take some in-flight photos. Mark Fingar style.

They were on the sidelines, so if they didn't land at Easterwood, they must have punched out somewhere else.

I called Astin on Friday morning and they told me the pilots were not landing.

So i'm pissed if the planes are sitting at Easterwood right now!

From Premium so take it with a grain of salt.

"This was true. The reason the pilots were not introduced until the 4th quarter was that the flight crew flew their f-16's back to Ft. Worth. I do not know the reason, but an F-16 is not allowed to land at Easterwood. All the pilots were then flown back to College Station in a single plane so they could be introduced. I know this was the case, as the guy sitting next to me last night has a brother-in law that was one of the pilots."

That is just dumb. Seems like they could have done a video remote or pre-recorded announcement.

The pilots have always been announced at that time of the game and that is with landing at Easterwood.

I realize that they could fly to Ft. Worth in very little time, but they can't go full speed, can't break the sound barrier over the CONUS. Then, the passenger plane would have to fly back. I don't see that effort being done to introduce the pilots during the game.
