Check out this link to the video of the 747 carrying Gerald Ford‘s body as it does fly-over Michigan Stadium. Follow this link, then click on the link to the right that says “Video of Ford 747 Ann Arbor flyover”. Pretty cool.
It is understood that the pilot requested a flyby from anyone who would listen in the Michigan pressbox, but was told by Jim Brandstatter “negative Air Force Two, the pattern is full.”. The pilot did it anyway, but rest assured that’ll be the last of these circus stunt flybys over Michigan Stadium. Go Blue!
