[Photo] Four F/A-18 Hornets fly over Fenway Park before the first game of the 2013 World Series

Flyovers can be quite a sight, as those of C-5 Galaxy cargos over Gillette Stadium during New England Patriots home games, or extremely noisy (to such an extent they can shatter some windows), as the one made by two Mirage 2000 fighter jets over the Supreme Court and Congressional buildings in Brasíla, Brazil’s capital, on Jul. 1, 2012.

Still, a night flyover by four jets in full afterburner is probably even more spectacular.

Taken on Oct. 23, outside of Fenway Park in Boston Massachusetts before the first game of the 2013 World Series this photo taken shows what a flyover by four F/A-18 Hornet jets at night looks like.

Cool, isn’t it?

By the way, the aircraft should have been legacy Hornets belonging to the VMFA-115 Silvereagles from MCAS Beaufort South Carolina operating from Hanscom Field, MA.

  1. Back in 2008, a four-ship of F-16s from the Vermont ANG did the flyover ceremony at Fenway Park for the Opening Day ceremonies. One of the pilots had some trouble getting/staying in formation, and pulled some aerobatics to try and get into position. (It didn’t work, and the pilot was grounded, but it looked GREAT from the ground!)
