Hey, Sootbox, are you from KC? I'm asking because one of my favorite teams is the Chiefs, since the glory days of Len Dawson and Ed Podolak. One of my "things to do before I die" is go to Arrowhead and cheer the Chiefs. I'm sorry for going off-topic. I was watching the game on TV and missed that show. Should have been spectacular. Cheers.

Lined up in an arrowhead pattern with 8 wide at the base after joining formation in groups of 4. Only took 2 practice runs with the assistance of 2 chase planes and a robinson helicopter shooting video and pictures. Totaled about 3.5 hrs flight time for the two runs and debriefs following both runs. Great flight for a great cause.
