Super Bowl XLVIII and aerospace

Metlife Stadium, as imaged by the Earth Observing-1 satellite on January 30, 2014.

Boeing painted its 747-8 flight test aircraft to cheer on its home team and burned a lot of jet fuel to be the airborne 12th man.

One of the Seattle Seahawks cheerleaders is also a US Air Force officer.
