Awesome 49 Homebuilt Airplane Formation 'Flyover' at the Kansas City Chief's
Federal budget cuts have eliminated many military flyovers at large public
events. But, there's a group of dedicated airplane guys in the Kansas City
area who occasionally perform formation-flying on their own and decided '
it's time to pick up the slack !!', you may have seen this event sometime
ago on the TV evening news. The guy's sent out an invitation to other
regional pilots to come join them, and they now had 48 well experienced
pilots and their handmade, homebuilt airplanes to do something that's never
been seen or attempted before. The coordinators later mentioned if they had
more time, they probably could have arranged to 'field' an even larger
aerial display with other pilots.
The group practiced their feat several times at an outlying flying field and
had a 49th airplane added the day before the scheduled event. One
additional feature of the flyover was the use of pink smoke for cancer
The folks from the Guinness Book were there and are expected to confirm it
as the largest homebuilt airplane formation flight ever.
