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 KC-135s and a Reserve unit with C-17s that haven't even hinted at anything.

Scott AFB is the same....StL has been all quiet, and we even make the F-15 and F/A-18's here......sigh.

Cherry Point is finally doing a flyby over eastern NC tomorrow at noon. It will cover 3 locations: CarolinaEast Medical Center, Carteret Health Care and Camp Lejeune. Exact times and participating aircraft unknown. If I can manage, I'll get out during lunch and capture what I can.

To people who have been snubbed thus far, just be patient. This seems to be something that every base wants to be involved in, but maybe hasn't had the ability to plan out with everything that's going on.

Update: made a map of the 3 sites. Order or flight path is unknown.

I was literally just going to post the same thing about Pittsburgh. With UPMC here I am absolutely shocked that at a minimum we haven't seen anything from the local units or ones in neighboring states. The 171st has always rarely supported air shows and flyovers at events. The 911th seem to get around the community quite a bit so I am surprised we haven't seen anything from them yet. Maybe it is in the works.

Not military, but here's a very interesting one. Jet Blue will be doing flyovers near NYC on May 7th!
