    Great honor for FSU, sad to hear about the pilot though, never like hearing things like that.

    I always wished that this formation was performed at the Texas A&M - Texas game in 1999, after the Bonfire collapse. I was at that game when I was only 11 and I still get chills thinking of how emotional and incredible that game was.. the pregame was so solemn, the national anthem, the UT band playing taps, the game itself, just incredible. Having that flyover formation and the meaning behind it would have made the stadium erupt.

    EDIT-- here is a photoshopped version of what it would look like.. well except all flyovers go south to north (this one is north to south) and there would be a lot more people in stands and ground level seating, and I believe that astro-turf practice field was real grass in '99, though I'm not completely sure.

    Sorry to bring back a dead thread, but the Missing Man formation was performed at the A&M - Utah State game a couple weekends back. I'm not sure who it was dedicated to or for as we were still tailgating on the north side of campus when it happened, but it was a beautiful albeit bittersweet thing to see. I screamed at my girlfriend to take a picture and she got just this one with only the 3 remaining in frame, the 4th one is just out of the frame to the top.
