Having been to many races coast to coast it has always amazed me there havent been more accidents. Humpy Wheeler started the trend when he pulled a
string of a contact in the military, for such an event many years ago. Now they have a flyover at the closing of the Anthem prior to the race
beginning everywhere. Usually an awsome sight and gets the crowd worked-up well.
I have always wondered about one crashing as the flyover is usually very low with afterburners on to thrill the crowd. I have watched fighters,
bombers, choppers, stealth fighters, war games in the infield, and it is awsome. The bomber was at Charlotte and where my seats were, I was almost
PARALLEL with the craft as it flew by thru the center of the track.
