Super Bowl LII was deemed the coldest in history with a kick off temp of 2 degrees. The rest of the day hung around or below zero with a wind chill of -25 making our flight a little brisk. Hand-warmers, face masks and many layers were a must for this good-ole-fashioned Minnesota day.
We had a great time chasing snowplows on runways and hanging out the side of Helicopters in the sub-zero Minnesota weather for our latest shoot. In partnership with the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) and Hummingbird Aviation (HBA), North Star Aerial embraced the Bold North and flew doors off just prior to Super Bowl LII. There were 2,596 total flights related to the Super Bowl and 441 planes on the ground during the game. The logistics of flying on Super Bowl Sunday was no joke. A big shout out to Chris Cooper and the entire Hummingbird Aviation team for planning flight Ops!
