TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State's 2012 season gets started Saturday evening and to help kick the year off in style, two United States Navy F/A-18 Super Hornets will perform a flyover from the north to south endzones before the Seminoles square off against Murray State.
Led by U.S. Navy Captain Scott Fisher, who has a daughter that graduated from FSU and a son that is currently a senior, the Super Hornets will fly over Bobby Bowden Field around 5:53 p.m. at the conclusion of the National Anthem.
Fisher's crew is part of the Air Test and Evaluation Squadron (VX-9) based all the way out in China Lake, Calif.
Saturday's flyover will be the first of several for Florida State games this season.
The next one will take place prior to the 'Noles' noon game against Wake Forest Sept. 15 and will be performed by four A-10 "Warthogs" based out of Moody Air Force Base in Georgia.
For each game, fans are encouraged to be in their seats well before kickoff to watch these unique and memorable spectacles.
