17 minute video shot from a lot of angles. The two demo teams flew over NYC and three other cities for a tribute.

"The US Navy Blue Angels and US Air Force Thunderbirds performed a very rare joint flyover above New York City, Trenton, Newark, and Philadelphia on April 28, 2020 to honor health care and essential workers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. The teams departed from NAS Pensacola in Florida and were refueling mid-flight by four KC-10 Extenders before returning back to Pensacola.

Flyovers will continue around the country under the name Operation America Strong."

Blues and Birds coming over FW/DAL on Wed. Should be a good show. I doubt I will see them out this far, but might drive into FW to see it. Supposed to be between 11 am and Noon. Mark Fuess put out a map of the flight path.

Heard it is only the Blues for here. The birds are not flying here.

John, yes, that's what we saw today - no T -Birds. Not sure why no Birds. Got a couple of pics out by Carswell.

I think with the time frame for us,Houston and Louisiana. The only way I could see it working was if they split up. It was like a 45 to one hour split between each flyover today and unless they flew Milpower I don't see how they could make it especially with have to fuel.
