Military Cuts Prevent -Fly Overs So Private Pilots Take Over--Largest Flyover Ever--KC Arrowhead

 " At Arrowhead Stadium  Sunday....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 that
  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 RV 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
  where 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."

Thank you Virginia & Kirk!

I was just wondering, couldn't they do fly-overs with Air Force One ... you know, while taking Obama and his family to their several-times-a-year vacation spot?
