Naturally, the place I work (PAFB) was involved too.

Yep, and when they told him to turn around he did - went right back over the staduim again. The F-16 pilot said they damn near had to splash him too. The snowbird was using a hand-held only, comm was poor, and the F-16 was guns-free. Got REAL serious for a minute.

It was a great rally!

The traffic afterwards was really something. It took me about 2 hours to get clear of the stadium area.

Nobody seemed to mind though.

I think most took it as a sign of the high level of support Bush has here in Brevard - much higher than FLAToday reports.
