Bird's-eye view of history

OK, so even if you're not an Indianapolis 500 fan ... or even an auto racing fan in general ...

This is some awesome stuff. Thirty-three of the most iconic Indy-winning cars in history, lined up in 11 rows of three to promote the 100th anniversary of the first 500 (coming in 2011). The Marmon Wasp that won the first race in 1911 is, appropriately, on the pole.

Among those spotted from the air: Jimmy Clark's green 1965 winning Lotus-Ford ... the maroon Boyle Maserati that Wilbur Shaw drove to victory in 1939 and 1940 ... Al Unser's fabled Johnny Lightning Special, circa 1970 and 71 ... brother Bobby's 1968 winner ... A.J. Foyt's winning front-engine Offy roadster from 1964.

Way cool.
