Have you heard of the Flying Lawn Mower incident? If your answer is "no," then the Jets and the NFL have done a good job covering this incident up. In December of 1979, an aerial group who claimed to fly anything and everything, including a lawn mower, did a demonstration during halftime of a Jets/Patriots game. As the flying lawn mower circled the Shea Stadium crowd, it stalled and landed near the third base field boxes, striking John Bowen, from Nashua, N.H. Bowen died only a week later.
