I've done the same thing here at work (a community college on approach to Hayward Airport), except the aircraft were a B-17, a B-24, a P-51 and I think a P-47. Must have been around the time of Fleet Week in San Francisco, as I recall. May have been some other airshow (not really local, but not too far away.) Made for a nice break to the day, as they did half a dozen circuits around the pattern, all in formation.
