Apparently they also did a flyover of my Dad’s house.

They're in town for this weekend's air show anyway, so this is local area familiarization for them.

Lightning lane. It’s going to cost you. I’ll gladly pay for that. Throw in some loops and inverted rolls and I’ll pay extra.

Always enjoy the fly overs. These pilots and the other military pilots on demonstration squadrons amaze me with their abilities. Hey Disney… where’s the contest to choose a guest to sit in the back seat for a unique experience of a fly over?
