    Fly Over the Boston Marathon April 21st

    Arrive over Hopkinton, Massachusetts by 9:45am to see the start of the race. This will be the biggest group of runners ever (25,000+).
    Fly at 1400' MSL and join the round turning counterclockwise.
    Helicopters will be below you at 900' and more above you at 2500'.
    Watch out for the banners being towed all around you.

    After about 30 minutes proceed to Norwood Airport KOWD and get in the van to ride to the racecourse to see the leaders run by.
    A sandwich lunch is traditional on the roadside in Wellesley.

    This is unique to Boston and a lot of fun to see and participate in.

    The FAA has announced that there will be NO TFR over the Marathon. There are many other hoops to jump through but all doable.
