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.
