WABAC Machine, AFA Style

Here are some cool old photos of the Air Force vs Wyoming game from November 3, 1962, the year they opened Falcon Stadium, taken by Stan Howey.

Pregame crowd is kind of light,
just like the in-game crowds this year.
Cool goalposts! 
The Cadets marching onto the field.
Hey! Look everyone! It’s a guy with a bird!
Let’s eat it!
Now that’s a better crowd!
Air Force wins! Air Force wins!

Ben Martin’s Falcons beat the Cowboys 35-14 and finished the season at 5-5 with wins over Colorado State, @ SMU, @ Arizona, @ UCLA and Wyoming, and losses to @ Penn State, Oregon, Miami (FL), Baylor and @ Colorado. I’d say that’s one hell of a schedule.

This year they beat Colgate and Army and lost ten games. That’s about all I’ve got about that so here’s another picture of a Cadet with a falcon.

Thanks to Sean O’Connell for his grandfather’s pictures!
