Default Flyover

Hello,
Would anybody living near Malibu be interested in doing a "flyover" at a wedding event? My buddy is getting married and I would like to end my speech with thanking for his service in the military and a flyover with RC jets. I was originally just going to do an audio flyover but I thought that I would check with the RC community and see if any of you guys would be interested in showing off your skills.

Let me know if anyone is interested, the wedding is this Saturday 06/22 around 3-4pm
Thank you
Jay

Fun but probably not practical.

You would have to have adequate facilities to operate the jets safely within line of sight of the wedding.

Not only that, but against AMA Insurance rules of flying over people. Flying along side the wedding would be ok, but, as Baracuda said, there needs to a lot of space.

Would kind of ruin the surprise.

It's really short notice now but try contacting a local flying club (full scale). There are lots of guys that have full scale and love doing things like this. At our local airport there are even a few guys with warbird that go fly every weekend just for fun. Pretty cool watching a Harvard, T34, there is a tiger moth and an SE5A that regularly fly over. Even a group of 3 guys with some low wing retract gear sport planes that fly formation over me regularly.
