John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and Founder of Team Fastrax™ said, “We are honored to be performing our patriotic American Flag skydive for the Navy football game. Members of Team Fastrax™ have served the United States of America as part of the Armed Forces, many in combat, so we particularly enjoy performing at any event that honors our nation’s military.”
According to the Navy Midshipmen Football website, in addition to the Team Fastrax™ performance, there will be a flyover at the conclusion of the National Anthem. Saturday’s flyover will feature 2 Boeing F/A-18E Super Hornets from the “Fighting Omars” of Fighter Squadron Composite Twelve based out of Naval Air Station Oceana, Virginia Beach, Va.
