East Dallas neighbor Brian Aiken shared a video on YouTube on Sept. 27, welcoming Big Tex back to Fair Park, and it’s absolutely amazing.

Aiken first made a smashing debut to YouTube with his video “Dallas from Above,” which has gotten more than 32,000 hits since he shared it in August.

For this video, Aiken uses the same video techniques that made his first video a hit — filming via a flying drone of some sort, although he doesn’t specify what kind. But he says he also combined talents with filmmaker friend Reidland Tucker, which explains the distinct differences between this video and the original.

At any rate, it’s a touching tribute, and it makes me exciting for fair season. Welcome back Big Tex!
