Re: Blue Angels, Thunderbirds, and more - Operation America Strong Flyovers

The 171st and 193rd flyover was well attended, but today was a pretty terrible day weather wise compared to the original date last Friday and yesterday both of which were gorgeous. The KC-135 callsign STEEL62 and EC-130J callsign BATON20 flew over the downtown area at 2,500' AGL with quite a bit of ...

Re: Blue Angels, Thunderbirds, and more - Operation America Strong Flyovers

I’m not too optimistic about the Western PA flyover scheduled for Tuesday. They postponed from Friday due to a poor forecast (and it was gorgeous) and now the entire week has strong thunderstorms forecast and soaking rain.

Re: Blue Angels, Thunderbirds, and more - Operation America Strong Flyovers

Missed this one, but apparently the flyover at Tyndall featured an F-22 which subsequently crashed. Sounds like the pilot got out ok but let's hope everyone on the ground is alright Not saying it didn't happen, but I'm not finding anything about it on some of the larger Florida news station website...

Re: Blue Angels, Thunderbirds, and more - Operation America Strong Flyovers

The Pennsylvania Air National Guard will start conducting flybys on Friday with a KC-135 and EC-130 over Pittsburgh, Johnstown, and Harrisburg. Hopefully they will do more over other parts of the commonwealth soon! https://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2020/05/13/pennsylvania-national-guard-plans-flyover...

Re: Blue Angels, Thunderbirds, and more - Operation America Strong Flyovers

And out in California......crickets, nada, nothing lol. I figured between Travis, Edwards, Beale, 144th out of Fresno, 129th out of Moffett Field etc we would get something. Hopefully something is announced soon. You're not alone. Silence in Pittsburgh too. We've got a very active Guard unit with K...

Re: Blue Angels, Thunderbirds, and more - Operation America Strong Flyovers

I find it interesting that specific times and routes are provided for all of these flyovers. I get why and support it, but it's curious after years and years of airshows and other aerial events telling us they can't release specific information "for security reasons." Want to know when the <jet team...

Re: Dayton Air Show 2020

Unfortunately their reasons the airshow is "safe" won't mean a thing if the Governor's stay-at-home order is still in effect. I too hope life can get back to normal, but I also realize we can't rush it even for the things we "really want" because then the flattened curve will become a new spike in t...
