Safety expert says upside down helicopter flyovers at stadiums not as safe as you think

Nashville, TN - Watching our U.S. military perform majestic flyovers at sporting events has become a time-honored tradition, but one safety expert is speaking out about the dangers. Especially when the performers are inverted helicopters.

"Upside down helicopters flying through crowded stadiums is not as safe as you might think," says security guru Gerald Pendergrass.

Pendergrass agrees that it is an incredible sight, but the maneuver can do a lot of damage to the turf, among other risks.

"Those blades produce a lot of force, and if they get too close to the field, it can be catastrophic to playing surfaces."

Along with upside down helicopters, Pendergrass also warns against aircraft flying through goal posts.
