Arrowhead Stadium Sunday, October 13, 2013....


  As you 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 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 RC 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 later set the record for the loudest  

gathering at a football stadium.

Hope  you enjoy this short video as much as I did.

The link did the same for me also.  But it you do a Google search with this string of words "arrowhead stadium 49 plane flyover" you'll get quite a few things to look at.  I remember seeing a national news piece on it.
 
Oh, and the homemade planes are actually RV not RC.  They're a well respected homebuilt kit airplane (http://www.vansaircraft.com/).
