In case you had to work today or just forgot it was happening until you saw the large, blue Boeing jetliner buzz your Snoquamie home, here is some video today’s (August 24th) flyover. It happened at 11.20AM and Kite Hill at Snoqualmie Community Park was packed with “jet-gazers.”
The flyover signaled the start of the 2012 Boeing Classic Golf Tournament, a stop on the Champions PGA Golf Tour. The tournament runs through Sunday, August 26th at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge in Snoqualmie, WA. This morning’s jet flyover was courtesy of a Korean Air Boeing 747-800.
As of 3:15PM, August 24th, Mark Calcaveccia was in the lead at 5 under par through 8 holes, with three golfers right behind him at 3 under par. To keep up with the 2012 Boeing Classic Leader Board click HERE.
It isn’t very often you get a chance to see a jet this size fly so low – and it was surprisingly quiet for flying at such a low-level. I am still working on my video skills and my kids helped edit all the footage to come up with the least shaky footage. Just click the picture to play. Enjoy!
