Cavanaugh Takes Part In Fly Over At Husker Spring Game

Minden graduate Drew Cavanaugh piloted the lead plane during the Spring Game flyover April 16 at Memorial Stadium. The honor was an unexpected surprise to Cavanaugh who learned just the day before the game that he would be part of the show.
“I never met the other two pilots before that day. We got there a couple hours before the show to practice formation flight,” Cavanaugh said.
During the practice runs and the routine, the other pilots mimicked Cavanaugh’s maneuvers. Although it was his first formation flight, he had the help of another ROTC cadet in the stadium helping to coordinate the flyover with the national anthem.
