Someone pointed out to me that some of the local units are calling this Operation American Resolve. I'm not sure if that's a re-brand for what was Operation America Strong, or if that name is reserved for the jet teams. Regardless, they seem to mean the same thing for all intents and purposes.

For those wondering, Whiteman says they will publish a schedule next week. It'd be crazy to see all of those jets together! Hopefully they don't split them up onto separate routes.

Here's more info for South Carolina. This says "West Route" so maybe there are more stops elsewhere?

I would hope they wouldn't split them up.....but I'm going to need my wide angle to get that formation :D

Would be nice to see them all together, too. I'm trying to arrange it so I can do KC and Indy's fly overs.

This link has the "South Route" https://www.nathansnews.com/2020/04/ope ... 27th-11am/

This link has what appears to be the east route of the state https://abcnews4.com/news/local/169th-f ... h-carolina

I am seeing this similar post on several Johns Hopkins facebook pages yet I can't verify the flyover schedule here or anywhere else:
Suburban Hospital, Johns Hopkins Medicine

"Tomorrow, April 25, the Blue Angels, Thunderbirds and KC-135R aircraft will perform a flyover of hospitals in Baltimore and Washington, D.C. They are expected to fly over Suburban Hospital around 12:15 p.m. Please remember to maintain proper physical and social distancing from wherever you view the flyover."
Anyone have input?
