I too, turned on the game but, just as I feared, they usually don't show the national anthem unless it's something bigger like the Super Bowl.

Default Kansas City Chiefs Flyover Today (13 Oct 2013)

Today 49 aircraft, mostly RV's will attempt a record flight over the KC Chiefs football game. Here is a link to the news report. I am sure it will appear on one of the news channels later this evening.

Here is a link to the actual event flyover

I took my daughter up for her first flight in 225WD this morning. I heard the flight check in with Lee's Summit unicom as they were returning from the flyover. Pretty impressive to check in with a flight of 49.

Nice job guys. Very impressive that a bunch of guys in planes they built can develop the skills to fly 49 planes in formation over a major sporting event and show everyone that we are not all just a bunch of crazy people!

I have never done formation flying and was not really interested I it, but this has sparked something in me that I will look into once I have my 9a finished. Thanks

I lost my mother way to early from breast cancer and anything that can be done to find a cure is a great thing.

Default Chief's Fly Over

Very Cool...are most of the RVs from KC MO/KS area? How many were actually RV's?

Restoring RV-3
RV-9A Mazda 13B, FWF / Electrical (on hold to get the "3" flying)

From Rosie: All were RVs that included a couple of Harmon Rockets. Pilots (both male & female) came from everywhere including Maryland, Nebraska, Kansas (oh yea!), Colorado, Texas, Arizona, Wisconsin, Indiana, Nevada, Washington (state) and California just to name a few states.
