UPDATE: Who would expect that a golfing match — even a world-renowned tournament — might start a little like an NFL Super Bowl? Musical performances, patriotic processions including flag-waving and flag-raising, and a fighter jet flyover were included during the opening ceremony of the 39th Ryder Cup in Medinah, Illinois Wednesday evening between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. [THANKS TO ALL WHO REPLIED WITH A COMMENT!]

    Ryder Cup flyover?

  2. T Hawls says:

    They weren’t F-16’s. Two black F-15’s, maybe. I even thought they may be Mig 29’s in town for The Ryder Cup or something. Flying in formation right over Bolingbrook, and then circling south, west and back over the Wheaton area for about ten minutes at about 1645 hrs. No markings. Long range fuel tanks.

    Geneva, IL —
    F-15 fighter jets were seen and heard in the Tri-Cities area early Thursday evening after performing a fly-over for the opening ceremonies at the Ryder Cup in Bloomingdale.

    The jets are staying at the DuPage Airport in West Chicago over the weekend.

  4. lindiloo says:

    Yes, I saw them in Glen Ellyn, next town to Lombard, about 4:45PM.

  5. tk says:

    yes we saw and heard one jet. it flew over our lisle home off of rt 53. it went a few mile down the road and turned around and came back.
    it was further east on the on the flip side, could not see it.
    it was the lowest and loudest fighter we have ever seen flying in burbs.
    i would love to know what it was doing.
    ps maybe it was 2 jets. one going south and the other north?

  6. Phil says:

    Saw them about 4:45-5:00 while heading South on I-355, near Downer’s Grove. They appeared to be two F-15 jets though. Maybe something to do with the First Lady being in Chicago?
