Fwd: Fw: Coolest ever flyover

The Coolest Fly Over Ever!
The Chiefs were playing the Raiders.  
It would have been great if it had been the 49ers- and C. Kaepernick had been on the field.)
As you know, Obama's cuts eliminated the military flyovers at large events.  Well, there's agroup of guys in Kansas City who do some formation flying in their own planes, and 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 own 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 were there and are expected to confirm it as the largest formation flight ever.  And to top it off, the crowd set the record for the loudest gathering at a football stadium. 
Be sure your speakers are turned up.  Best if you watch at 'full screen'.

First point:

Complete an utter waste of taxpayer money. Especially when viewed through the lens of conservative's austerity obsession.

Second point:

What the F@*& does military display have to do with a football game?

Nothing, of course.

It turns out that the military was actually paying the NFL for those performances. They thought it was good for recruiting. Your taxpayer dollars at work.

Related - why do we perform the national anthem before a football game? We don't do it before a concert, or a movie.
