Flew right over my house...awesome!!
FAA regulations require that planes fly no lower than 500ft above the ground over unpopulated areas and 1500 ft over populated areas.
The FAA can grant waivers to this rule under certain circumstances such as public celebrations or observances. The pilots must adhere to any special requests regarding the route and maneuvers performed.
Anyway darn good formation flying by the pilots, especially the wing man who kept rock solid 3 ft standard wingtip separation on the 60 degree bank in their turn towards the east foothills.

Yes, warm and fuzzy. A dozen or so drones buzzing above the horizon would have been ice cream on the apple pie! But I won't feel entirely cuddley until we get a real commander in chief One who will increase our battleships to 1916 levels and who will treat Russia like the evil empire that it is. America WAKE UP!

'American warrior'---not. Did you leave your skirt on a Berkeley sidewalk? Man up...you passifists must really love our current w.h. Occupiers limp wristed 'leadership' in allowing Iran to continue to develop nukes. But, then you naive dolts think everyone shares your myopic view of the world and that they really mean to bring us dozens of daisies and to expand our worldview with their tolerant religious leadership.
Yup, people will surely respect you when you constantly kiss their feet and appear subservient and passive.
