Here's the map for Whiteman's flyovers of Kansas City
I'm 80% certain, I can make at least 3 of those contact points....i'm hoping traffic will be with me. But 1-4-8 all seem to be "reachable" in time.

Local news here in Detroit is reporting a joint flyover on Wednesday. That's a little surprising, it was originally supposed to be the Blue Angels only and not until later in the sequence but I sure hope it's both!

The F-35 Demo Team and other F-35s from Hill AFB will be flying over Utah (exact route TBD) on the 30th
We're incredibly thankful to all of the front line #COVID19 responders, and everyone else out there working to #flattenthecurve.

As a small show of support and solidarity; alongside the 388th Fighter Wing, we'll be launching a multi-city #Utah flyover from Hill Air Force Base this Thursday, 30 April at approximately 1 p.m. MDT.

Details with the route/approximate flight times to follow.

(Times are subject to change. Utah residents should observe the flyover from the safety of their homes, and should refrain from travelling to see the flyover. We strongly encourage all residents to maintain social distancing and avoid large gatherings.)
