A special flyover The B-2 Stealth Bomber flyover is always a crowd-pleasing way to start the Rose Parade, but this year the bomber had special accompaniment from two F-35 Lightning II fighters.

Those fighters, out of Edwards Air Force Base near Lancaster, flew in memory of Maj. Benjamin “Chex” Meier, an Altadena native who flew a F-35 as a test pilot out of Edwards until his death in Sept. 2015 following a traffic collision on base.

 The pilots flying the F-35s were Meier’s squadmates, and the F-35 on the B-2s left was the one Meier flew. After he died, Meier’s major organs were donated. As such, he was commemorated with a “floragraph” picture on this year’s Donate Life float.

The “Fabulous” Forum’s float celebrated the Inglewood arena’s 50th anniversary, but the special performance on the float was kept a secret until it rolled up Orange Grove. As the float neared the main grandstands, “September” by legendary R& B and soul band Earth, Wind and Fire began playing, and from the center of the model of The Forum rose the band, much to the crowd’s delight
