Any of the Kalamazoo Air Zoo birds flying. I'll vouch for that. The Bearcat & Tigercat used to perform some great routines! The Tri-Motor was the final flying aircraft in the collection and it was officially retired this fall. It now sits in the main exhibit hangar on display (looking right at it as I type).

The Northern Lights too. They used to fly a great routine in their Extra's and then switched to the L-39s before disappearing.
