Saw it NFL.com a few months ago. Can't get enough of Tony Dungy saying KC has great fly overs! REP for posting this video!

That was pretty cool, thanks.

I was mentioning the most emotional flyover's I witnessed somewhere a while back, maybe it was here at CC, can't remember.

One was when I attended the season opener in 2000 against the Colts. It was the first Chiefs game played without DT on the field since 1989...of course the flyover was in his honor that day.

The 2nd most emotional was the NY Giants game at Arrowhead following 9-11. I had bought tickets to that game in August...prior to knowing what was to tragically come on 9-11. The NFL cancelled all games the first Sunday following 9-11, but began again the next Sunday, which was the Giants game I'd bought ticket's too.

My daughter & her hubby had planned to go with us, but they backed out, cause there were so many rumors terrorists were going to attack NFL stadiums. I admit I was a bit nervous, but I attended as planned with much American pride and spirit. I'm very grateful I did, because that it was a historical game related to the Chiefs and fans paying tribute to the Giants and their home, NYC.

At the HOF in Canton, they have an area dedicated to how 9-11 affected the NFL, and many photos are displayed of the Chiefs/Giants game in particular, because of the honorable way Chiefs and fans welcomed and paid tribute to the Giants and NYC that day.

The Chiefs players formed two single row lines on each side of the visitor's tunnel...waving flags in the air as the Giant's player's ran past them being introduced on the field. The crowd in standing ovation of course, cheered and applauded. Many were in tears, including me, other's were saluting.

KC Firefighters passed boots among the fans in the stands to collect contributions for 9-11 victims, I can't remember the amount collected, but KC was very generous, and the amount was also noted on the HOF 9-11 tribute wall. I've never been so proud to be a Chiefs fan that day. That was also the most emotional Chiefs game I ever attended, for obvious reasons.

This pic below is a well recognized one, and is also displayed on the HOF's 9-11 tribute wall. It was taken that day of Eric Warfield running out of the Chiefs tunnel. Each of Chiefs players also ran out of their own tunnel being introduced waving the flag.

Nice seats. My dad had seats about that spot, except on the other side of the stadium.

They were pretty good until it started raining.

I can't tell you how awesome being at a game for a flyover is. I hope that is something every Chiefs fan gets to enjoy at some point in their life.
