Air Force Falcon Video: Air Force and Georgia Tech entered Monday's Independence Bowl with the top two rushing attacks in all of college football.

So naturally you would expect most of the action in that game to take place on the ground, right?

Wrong. The biggest play of the day was through the air.

Prior to kickoff, the Air Force Falcon mascot—an actual falcon rather than a college student dressed in a suit—took flight.

The falcon traditionally flies through the stadium before returning safely, but this time it flew right out of the stadium.

Where did that falcon go?

Well, it was gone for the entire game but was later recovered in Shreveport, La.

The falcon wound up missing a 14-7 victory by Air Force.
