Pregame festivities

The Armed Forces Bowl is sponsored by Bell Helicopter, which supplies its products to the military. There was a majestic demonstration a few minutes ago when the company displayed its helicopters by sending a few of them up and around the stadium. They took off from a roped off area right behind the stadium, appearing over the concourse then ultimately flying away.
