Awesome 49 Homebuilt Airplane Formation 'Flyover' at the Kansas City Chief's

Football Pre-Game 

 

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

awareness.   

 

The folks from the Guinness Book were there and are expected to confirm it

as the largest homebuilt airplane formation flight ever.
