Military planes to fly over Levi’s Stadium during 49ers game

SANTA CLARA (BCN) — Officials at Mineta San Jose International Airport are warning the public not to get nervous when military jets take to the sky this weekend for Sunday’s San Francisco 49ers football game against the Baltimore Ravens.

A group of paratroopers will be flying and performing demonstrations above Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara during the game, which is expected to start around 1:25 p.m., according to the 49ers.

The team, known as Team Fastrax, will perform exhibition skydives from fixed-wing airplanes as they hold and display the American flag.

Four Harrier jets will also be included in the performance, according to Mineta San Jose International Airport officials.

The aircraft will not be flying out of the San Jose airport, but instead from Moffett Federal Airfield, located near Mountain View, airport officials said.
