The U.S. Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron, the Thunderbirds, honored frontline COVID-19 responders and essential workers with formation flights over San Antonio and Austin this afternoon.
“We are honored to extend our gratitude to Texans in San Antonio and Austin who have been working hard to keep their communities safe,” said Lt. Col. John Caldwell, Thunderbirds commander and leader. “We want Texans to look up to see the display of American resolve and know that the American spirit will prevail beyond this difficult time in our nation.”
A formation of 6 F-16C/D Fighting Falcons conducted the flyovers as a salute to healthcare workers, first responders, military, and other essential personnel while standing in solidarity with all Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Residents along the flight path gathered to watch the sight of 6 high-performance aircraft flying in precise formation.
