Flyover scheduled for Saturday’s Football Opener

August 31, 2019


FAYETTEVILLE – The 1st of the 114th Aviation Regiment, part of the 77th Combat Aviation Brigade in the Arkansas National Guard, will perform a flyover prior to Arkansas’ game against Portland State on Saturday.

Two UH-72A Lakota and one UH-60L Blackhawk helicopters will fly past the stadium immediately following the national anthem just prior to the 3 p.m. kickoff.

The 1-114th Aviation Regiment provides airlift, MEDEVAC, search and rescue, as well as reconnaissance capabilities to the citizens of Arkansas and to the Nation. The battalion is a premier unit in the 77th Combat Aviation Brigade and is often called to action by the Governor for state active duty. These Guardsmen, from all across our great state, quickly respond to aid the state of Arkansas and other locations around the nation as needed.
