Dodgers fly-over

Tomorrow's the anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. And the Dodgers are on top of that with "Heroes Night," in its first game of three against the San Diego Padres. According to an email from Noel Pallais of the Dodgers part of the festivities will be a "fly-over." To which I say, what? No Navy Seals in parachutes?

Pallais wrote:

In recognition of the heroes who both contributed to the rescue efforts and lost their lives on September 11, 2001, The game on Tuesday, September 11th is "Heroes Night." This year the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) will be honored for their efforts in fighting the Esperanza Fire. The LAFD will coordinate a pre-game fly- over and children of the firefighters who died in the Esperanza Fire will be on hand to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
Should you have any concerns relative to these events; please call our Neighborhood Focus Line at (323) 224-2636.

Just wondering: if the LAFD is coordinating the "fly-over," does that mean they'll be dropping water?
