Holy shit, where are the fiscally conservative members of our government to take the Navy to task for spending an obscene amount of money for a two-second flyover at the Super Bowl?
For absurdity, how about those four Navy F-18s flying over the stadium – with its retractable roof closed? Everybody inside could only see the planes on the stadium’s video screens. It was strictly a two-second beauty shot. Know what it cost taxpayers? I’ll tell you: $450,000. (The Navy justifies the expense by saying it’s good for recruiting.)
Is that what it really costs for a military flyover at sporting events? Because, holy shit, what a waste of money.
