Red Footed Cannibalfly

Subject: Giant fly/bee thing?

Today on my bus route I had an unexpected passenger. I live in Maryland and we had a heat index of 108 at the time. He/she was a very loud flyer and looks like a cross between a bee and a fly and did not seem to want to go outside. Please help me identify him/her.

This predatory Robber Fly is commonly called a Red Footed Cannibalfly.
