USAF pilot loses wings after violating flyover rules at football game

A USAF major has been punished for flying too low and too fast when leading a flight on a flyover before a football game in Iowa. The pilot has further opted to turn in his wings and will leave the USAF. The four T-38 trainers reportedly flew a mere 16 ft above the height of the stadium's press box, and were flying 100kts faster than permitted.
