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!

I contacted the 171st and they said they hope to release more details later today. They are still talking with the 193rd to plan everything. Curious that the 911th (US Air Force Reserve as opposed to PA ANG) also based in Pittsburgh isn't participating with their C-17s.

I saw it just a few minutes after it got posted last night, and I'm going to remove the link in your post just because I think the people re-posting it on their Youtubes and pages (not you!) are trying to capitalize on the footage while hiding behind 'posting it to raise awareness'. I don't want to contribute to spreading it further because the more people see it, the more people will get ideas to do the same thing.

For those who haven't seen it, some asshole basically put his drone right into the path of the jets as they went over downtown Detroit. They miss it by MAYBE a couple hundred feet and probably much less. He was kind enough to post the footage on Facebook (even directly on the Blue Angels' wall!) bragging about how his drone almost got taken out.

The video is infuriating and the attitude of the person who filmed it is disgusting. He says it's the Blue Angels fault that they got too close to his drone (which he was flying illegally). That so easily could have killed a whole bunch of people and he just thinks it makes him awesome. I know for a fact that the team is aware of it, and it has been reported to the FAA by many different people. I hope he ends up in jail.
