Well, that's enough amateur photography from me. I'm sure there will be many more higher quality pics coming out soon. These are just a couple from my daughter's iPhone in the backseat. I can't wait to see the professional shots taken by the photo airplane!

Default Driver, Fan and Media reaction to the flyover

First, congratulations to the KC Flight Formation Team for doing such a great job yesterday at PIR. The reaction from the drivers, fans and the media was incredible.

Claire B Lange, Nascar reporter, had this to say:

Motor Racing Network:

The drivers all looked up as the formation flew over:

The fans loved it. I wonder how many pictures were taken of the KC Flight Formation Team flyover?
