Joint Blue Angels, Thunderbirds flyovers start Tues 4/28

Recommended Posts

A heads-up...

A formation of 6 F-16C/D Fighting Falcon and 6 F-18C/D Hornet aircraft will conduct these flyovers as a collaborative salute from the Air Force and Navy to recognize healthcare workers, first responders, military, and other essential personnel while standing in solidarity with all Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The joint flyover by Air Force and Navy aircraft will take place over Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Delaware, on Tuesday afternoon 4/28 as the military flight demonstration squadrons focus on honoring front-line workers in some of the places hardest-hit by COVID-19.

The mission is one of many multi-city flyovers both demonstration teams will conduct in the next two weeks in areas of the country hit hardest by the coronavirus. The military is calling the collaborative salute "America Strong."


The Philly/Trenton flyover starts when the aircraft take off from Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst at 1:45 p.m. The airplanes will then loop over Trenton and Levittown, Pennsylvania, before flying over the Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, area at 1:55 p.m. . The planes will make a few loops over the Philly area before ending the flight around 2:15 p.m. south of Wilmington, Delaware.
