Michigan's Flyover On Saturday Will Include Stealth Bomber, Bald Eagle

With Air Force coming to town on Saturday, Michigan is going all out with its patriotic festivities. There are plans to recognize Leroy Petry, a recipient of the Medal of Honor, during the ceremonial coin toss, and there is going to be a "Salute Around the Big House." Also, the band is going to play a military halftime show, and before the game, Michigan has planned quite the flyover:

Pregame Flyover:
• Three University of Michigan Helicopters
• Eagle Flyover During National Anthem -- Challenger
• B-2 Stealth Bomber

Challenger is a bald eagle that has been trained to do flyovers at sporting events, and he was in the Big House on Friday to practice for Saturday. Check it out:

I have a feeling there will be quite a few U-S-A chants on Saturday in Michigan Stadium.
