Default Great job on the NASCAR flyover in Kansas today

Great air to air video footage of the RV flyover at the Kansas NASCAR race today on ESPN. I thought I had it recording, but didn't. But here is reaction by people on twitter:

Default Great Job!

I saw that today too and I was proud. I did, however, have a question. Was the RV flyover planned or did the government shutdown negate a military aircraft fly-over?

The flyover was on the books for some time and not affiliated with the recent government shutdown.

Next weekend, KC Flight will be hosting a "large" flyover at Arrowhead Stadium - Chiefs vs. Raiders supporting breast cancer awareness. RVs from all over the country will fly in to Kansas City to be a part of the flyover. Stay tuned and keep your fingers crossed for good weather. It's going to be a great event.

Sounds like a new Guinness Record attempt for the largest civilian close formation and LOTS of Pink smoke.

Default Yesterday over the Kansas Speedway



Thought you all might like to see what it looked like from the #2 position.

We were over the speedway as the anthem ended and the fireworks started. BeeGee was on time again.
