It was a sad moment when the Boilermaker announced that this year the annual post-race party would be without the popular flyover. That has been one of the signature features for the big event for countless years and when the military jets were not available, Executive Director for The Boilermaker Tim Reed, started digging in to see what else could be done. What he discovered was truly amazing!
This is a scary scenario. The pilot of the United Airlines plane you're flying on suddenly has a heart attack. A flight attendant asks if any passengers on board are pilots. That would be a tense time for everybody on the plane. Fortunately a National Guard pilot was able to step in and help out. Talk about being in the right place at the right time.
