FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The 154th Training Squadron, part of the 189th Airlift Wing in the Arkansas National Guard, will perform a flyover prior to Arkansas’ game against New Mexico State on Saturday.
An HC-130 aircraft will fly past the stadium immediately following the national anthem just prior to the 11 a.m. CT kickoff.

The wing is the quick response force when called to action by the Governor for state active duty. The wing's Rapid Augmentation Team is comprised of Guardsmen who respond to aid the state of Arkansas and other locations around the nation as needed.
