***World's Largest USA Flag displayed today...Pictures from Syncro***
My Adventure 9-11-2002 ^ | September 11, 2002 | SYNCRO and DR. ZOO

Posted on 09/11/2002 10:19:56 PM PDT by Syncro

KSFO sponsered the unfurling of the largest United States Flag today in Alameda.

There were over a thousand patriots here and it took over a thousand to keep the flag flying for over an hour.After this grate Patriotic Event I ventured over to San Francisco and encountered the communist terrorist supporters.

Hey! I was there! I met richandfamous and another FReeper, but forgot his handle. It sounded like zerious? zacherious?

Anyhow, here's a link to more pics. (Geocities, sorry about the popups. It was quick and dirty.)

There were helicopters there and some planes that flew over, but I don't know if there were any ariel pictures taken.

I do know some of the commercial airliners dipped their wings so the flag could be seen.

WSG, Thanks for the pictures, you seem to have gotten there before I did.

It's been a tough day today, But it's also been a great day for America. For the media to go all day without advertisements and stay focused on those who lost so much on 9/11 and to see the country united. Made this a great day for America

Beautiful!!!!

But can it REALLY fly? It can be unfurled, but can it fly?

Just kidding. ANY American flag is a beautiful sight. What are the measurements on that one?

Dang you are just too quick, I was going to ping you to this, thought you would like it.

I'll look up the exact mesurements but I think it is about 500 ft long.

One of the patriots attending today.

abner we need to get that Balloon out here!

There is an event here in October that would be perfect for you guys to come to and bring the Balloon but you probably are booked up...

That is the COOLEST balloon! BTW, did you get to fly today? As I'm sure you know, it was awfully windy here on the east coast today.

Nope. It was way too windy. We did go to the memorial though. We handed out Let's Roll bumper stickers. We will be flying this weekend in Chaddsford. Those flights look much better.

It has been incredible! Last night when we flew, we caused a mile long traffic jam in an industrial park. It's like being the Pied Piper!

October 7-12 in San Francisco. abner, I thought I had mentioned it a couple of months ago (and to Melanie.) Mediaqueen, can you pass this on, please. My thought was KSFO could sponsor it, and the balloon could be tethered (if need be) over at the Marina Green or Crissy Field. : )
