Wings over Utica - Boilermaker flyover returns

By WKTV Sports

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Jet aircraft will be again over the skies of the Boilermaker Post Race Party this year. Vintage jet fighters flown by the Genesee War Birds, based out of Batavia, New York, will perform the traditional flyover.

"The ability to gain access to military high performance aircraft has become extremely difficult with the loss of the F-16's formerly located in Syracuse," said Tim Reed, Executive Director of the Boilermaker.

The official sponsor of the flyover is Special Metals located in New Hartford. "We have always wanted to be a sponsor of the race," said Keith Dabbs, General Manager of Special Metals. "It's fitting to think that the aircraft doing the flyover may have our product in them."
