Air Force Thunderbird jets will fly over SoCal tomorrow afternoon to salute frontline workers.
W have been clapping for the COVID-19 heroes nightly, but very few essential workers are home to appreciate the moving show of support. As part of a national tour to impressive Air Force, Thunderbird jets will be putting on an aerial display that can seen by major medical centers in each city.
Residents along the flight path will hear the sound of 6 F-16C/D Fighting Falcons before they fly overhead in precise formation. Initially scheduled for Wednesday, the show will now take place tomorrow afternoon as the jets cover around 26 medical centers in San Diego and Los Angeles.
Onlookers will need to view the performance from their homes while practicing social distancing but can participate in the community conversation on social media using the hashtags #AmericaStrong and #InThisTogether.
Flyovers in San Diego will start at noon (PDT) and last approximately 15 minutes. Flyovers in Los Angeles will start at 1:10 P.M. (PDT) and last approximately 30 minutes, according to a press release.
The flight path begins around 1:35 p.m. in the Laguna Beach area in Orange County and will reach the Corona area around 2 p.m. The Thunderbirds will fly over the Moreno Valley area in Riverside County around 2:10 p.m. and reach the Los Angeles area around 3:05 p.m. The flyover will conclude in the Santa Clarita area. However, all of this is subject to change so it’s best to be prepared but keep an eye on social media for updates.
Tomorrow’s #AmericaStrong flyover serves as a salute to frontline COVID-19 responders in California.
IMPORTANT CHANGE: Los Angeles flyover start time shifted and will now start at 1:35 PM (not 1:10 PM) #InThisTogether 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/Wnv7NqeGSH
