During the 2015 season, the Army Black Knights and Navy Midshipmen unveiled some amazing helmets paying homage to their respective branches of military. The third academy in the FBS, the Air Force Falcons, revealed Sunday they will doing the same in 2016 and it may be the best of the three.
On Sunday, the Falcons revealed some “shark teeth” alternate helmets, which pay homage to the Flying Tigers. The team will wear the look on Sept. 10 against Georgia State.

While the Air Force Academy’s mascot is the Falcons, they have a storied past with the shark teeth look. During World War II, the United States and China joined forces to form the “Flying Tigers,” whose planes had a shark teeth pattern on the nose.
These helmets are pretty sharp and they should be accepted pretty well when it comes to the fans at the games. It looks like the rest of the country has something to live up to this year.
