Default Look what people can do !

We did not see this on the Gov. controlled media !!

Americans historically and by nature have always found a way to overcome
adversity. Oct 14, 2013 in Kansas City, at Arrowhead Stadium, that can do
American spirit was on full display.

Not able to call on our military for flyovers of events, due to budget
battles and politics.

A group of civilian pilots put together the largest formation flyover (49
aircraft) of any sporting event in history.

Add to that the fact, these were aircraft constructed from kits (RV's) by
individuals in their workshops, hangars and garages make this even more
impressive.

But wait there's more!!

All the aircraft trailed pink smoke as they flew over as part of National
Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To all who were involved in making this
happen .......

Look what we the people can do,
without the Big Brother,

That's awesome! I'm surprised the FAA didn't freak out, I wonder if/what permission they needed, seems like they were high enough not to violate any flight rules.

I showed this to my co-worker she is a breast cancer survivor. Like me she thought this was a great thing those pilots did. Glad you posted this up.

I had heard of this, but almost teared up when I saw it. Simply amazing!

All of my landings are three point landings if you count the spinner, too

It was in reference to a [spam?] post immediately above it that has been removed.
