    Amazing and with Lynn on the architecture ... and yes never here ... but noticed no attorneys perched on the buildings and bridges cleverly disguised as turkey buzzards... probably why they can do what they do freely... ;)

    Absolutely would never be allowed in the US. Its hard enough just getting regular boring airshows into metropolitan airports.

    Cool, thanks for sharing.

    Reminds me of the Red Bull airraces in Rotterdam. Absolutely stunning to see a plane pass below you, downtown, below bridges.

    I thought they would fly the airliner under the bridge. I used to do harder stuff than that with a spray plane it was just part of the job no big deal.

    One of my wife's best friends grew up very near there. All of her family is still in the area. Her Dad actually had a hand in it's construction. It's a pretty cool sight.

    I was on Red Bull guest there in 2008. Stunning show to see and really great service for guest in Red Bull guest area. Beat any aviation show anytime.
