I went to an NFL game on Sunday and like about half of the NFL games I've been to, there was a flyover by military jets immediately following the national anthem. Like always the crowd ate it up and cheered loudly, but even though i think a flyover is kind of cool, I can't help but wonder how much fuel does this use?

So what do you think? Are stadium flyovers cool, just plain wasteful, or maybe both? Join the conversation.
