Default Exciting

I counted 50. Really exciting! Too bad the average person does not know the whole story of what goes into these things. Great job folks!

Hi everybody,
We had a great time flying together today. What an awesome group of people! Hats off to everyone who put in all the time and effort to make this happen. Yesterday's weather was too rainy to get in a rehearsal, so we got one in this morning followed by the real deal at 13:02:45 EXACTLY. Bill Gill did a superb job of leading Speedway Flight, and I'm sure the NASCAR organizers are very happy with his ability to hit the time over target (TOT) right down to the nanosecond with 50 airplanes.
