Civilian Air Force to the Rescue

November 18, 2013

At Arrowhead Stadium:

As you probably know the budget cuts have eliminated the military flyovers at large events. Well, there’s a group of guys in Kansas City who do some formation flying in their own planes and that decided they’d volunteer to pick up the slack. They invited a couple of other groups to join  them and before they knew it they had 48 guys with their homemade RV  airplanes signing up to join in. If they had more time, they probably would have gotten an even larger group as people kept joining and a 49th was added  near the event. One additional feature of the flyover was the use of pink smoke for cancer awareness. The folks from the Guinness Book where there and are  expected to confirm it as the largest formation flight ever. And to top  it off the crowd later set the record for the loudest gathering at a football stadium.
