Sporting News reports, Fox Sports’ Joe Buck and Troy Aikman expressed their distaste for unnecessary flyovers.
Sunday, Raymond James Stadium was mostly empty when a set of jets flew overhead. The two were caught criticizing the flyover on a hot mic.

Aikman said, “That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover.”
Buck shot back, “That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work. That stuff ain’t happening with the Kamala-Biden ticket, I’ll tell you that right now, partner.”
It is estimated that a fly over by Blu Angels and Thunderbirds cost at least $60,000 per hour.

The Washington Post estimated last April that flyovers by Blue Angels (U.S. Navy) and Thunderbirds (Air Force) squadrons cost at least $60,000 per hour. The Post published that figure within a story about President Donald Trump’s plan for flyovers above nearly two dozen U.S. cities to salute front-line workers treating COVID-19 patients. The money would have come from the Pentagon’s budget, a senior military official told the Post.
