Busted Fly-Over

You probably won't ever again see the maneuver to rejoin the formation flown by a Vermont National Guard F-16 pilot at the Red Sox 2008 Opening Day ceremony.

The out-of-position pilot performed a maneuver which has resulted in his grounding for remedial training. The way he remedied his error busted an altitude limit, but having video of the maneuver likely added to the attention he's received.
The maneuver came just as the Boston Symphony Orchestra was finished playing the National Anthem.

Well, at least, he had his canopy toward the formation through the entire evolution.
