Military Jets Saluting Coronavirus Workers Across the Country
The Navy’s Blue Angels and the Air Force’s Thunderbirds will be doing multiple flyovers across the country to salute coronavirus workers.
The displays are currently underway.
According to The Hill:
The Navy’s Blue Angels, the Air Force’s Thunderbirds and other military wings are showing their appreciation to health care workers, first responders and other essential workers by flying over different areas of the country.
President Trump announced the plans last week for air shows to occur in cities across the U.S. to commemorate those who are working to keep the country afloat during the pandemic.
“We’re paying tribute to our frontline healthcare workers confronting covid, and it’s really a signal to all Americans to remain vigilant during the outbreak,” Trump said during a White House briefing.
The Blue Angels and Thunderbirds took to the skies above New York City, Philadelphia and Trenton, N.J., on Tuesday to celebrate essential workers.

More flyovers will continue to be made as we deal with this crisis.
I believe every thing is going just great in our White House, the Christmas trees looked very
pretty and nice, The whole house looked pretty if you were walking through it. I think Melania
always looks beautiful but I like to hear her talk, she has a cute voice. Thanks for being our
First Lady and yes we are all proud of you, even if Pres Trump is standing at your side, you
do him justice,
I love seeing that wall going up and so does my family. Thank you Pres Trump for having the
wall going up to the finish, We all thank you but some of them are also afraid to say that.
PRESIDENT TRUMP IS DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO UP LIFT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WITH WHAT WE HAD T O GO THROUGH WITH THIS VIRUS. HE IS UP LIFTING OUR SPIRITS., AND ANYONE SHOULD APPRECIATE THAT FEELING. HEY WE WENT THROUGH A MONTH OF ISOLATION AND THAT IS NEW TO ALL OF US.——BUT WE CAME THROUGH WITH FLYING COLORS
God bless our beloved President Donald Trump.
