FOX broadcasters Joe Buck and Troy Aikman dont appear to be big fans of military pregame flyovers at NFL games.
In a video obtained by Defector media, Buck and Aikman, who apparently didnt know they were being recorded, could be heard on a hot mic before the start of Sundays Packers-Bucs game mocking the pregame flyover as a waste of money by the government.
TROY AIKMAN: Thats a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover. JOE BUCK: Thats your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work! AIKMAN: That stuff aint happening with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket. Ill tell you that right now, partner.
While flyovers are fairly expensive military officials say they treat them as part of pilot training and the costs are drawn from training budgets.
The costs of flyovers are deducted from the training budget of the branch that takes part, and the time involved does count towards pilots training, however limited and simple the flyby may be.
Past flybys have been criticized as a waste of money, especially after the 2011 Super Bowl in Dallas, when jets flew low over the stadiums closed roof at a reported cost of $450,000.
NFL fans were pretty shook by the Buck-Aikman hot mic moment.

Troy has always been light in the loafers.
Another reason to ignore the NFL entirely.
Just what I’d expect from an ex-Cowboy.
I stopped on the game last night for about five minutes. Reminded me of a high school football game being broadcasted by your local tv station. Announcers sounded like they were announcing a golf tournament.
By that time their Twitter feeds, Facilebook pages and Instagrams were probably full of vitriol..........................
To be fair, if I were in Bucks shoes, Id probably say something similar just to go along get along - that phrase could be used for any government expenditure.
But what is Troy saying? Harris-Biden will eliminate the military? If not, does he really think they will be better stewards of tax dollars? Does he really think they will spend their time eliminating small details like this?
The power people assume government has - or should have - is frightening.
Preaching to the choir here Im sure. Im honing my rhetorical skillz...
A Kamala-Biden Administration! What ???
The Rick & Bubba Radio show this morning was trying to pass it off as ‘comedy’ or ‘kidding around’....................
He was a goat roper. Not a Cowboy.
Good to know.
These two continue to believe their customers (aka ticket buyers) are jerks and monsters
It’s a long way from Henryetta, Oklahoma to Manhattan.
You noticed, eh?........................
The pilots and ground crew must keep sharp and ready.
They could go fly around Nevada and Utah.
And, for a change, they could fly over a sports stadium.
Nothing wrong with a pre game flyover when you are going to burn the fuel anyways
Jack is pissed!
Troy has had six or seven concussions that he can “remember”
Can Troy remember the first quarter of the game during the fourth quarter????
I can relieve his moments on the field, but Troy is not someone I look to for wisdom and discernment
Even that dumb jock can see the grift. Partner.
