HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. —

A Boeing 747-8 jetliner made a low pass over the 18th hole during the second round of the RBC Heritage on Friday

The aircraft flew along the course's final hole and then circled the famous red-and-white striped lighthouse before crossing back over the fairway and rising out of sight. This is the second year that Boeing has been a presenting sponsor at the RBC Heritage.

The aircraft passed over as Dicky Pride, Brandt Jobe and James Hahn were lining up their putts. The three golfers paused along with the crowd to watch the 250-foot, 153-ton airplane fly by.

A year ago, Boeing's Dreamliner 787 made a flyover during the tournament. The Dreamliner is manufactured in Boeing's facility in North Charleston. That aircraft has been grounded because of battery problems.
