A pregame flyover at Angel Stadium on Monday might not be the loudest display ever at the ballpark, but it will be among the biggest.

A massive Boeing C-17 Globemaster III military transport plane is scheduled to fly over the field before the Angels' 6 p.m. Independence Day game against the Detroit Tigers in a display that will kick off a night of baseball and fireworks.

The C-17 that is set to take part in the flyover is dubbed "The Spirit of Ronald Regan" and is to be flown by members of the 729th Airlift Squadron out of March Field in Riverside.
