Flyovers have become crucial pieces in the lead-ups to important American sporting events, but the one done at the 2019 Indy 500 was different. While the P-40 and P-51 stuck to more basic routes, the A-10 and F-16 circled the track. At the end, the F-16 executed a battle-intended escape tactic known as a "quick climb."
The maneuver is exactly what it sounds like. The F-16 shot straight up into the air, and in doing so, provided an impressive view of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway down below. Relive the breathtaking moment from within the cockpit in the video above.
