The F-22 Raptor Demo Team and Air Force Heritage Flight Foundation are planning to salute frontline workers tonight.
The team is scheduled to take off from Joint Base Langley-Eustis and will proceed north to begin the flyover formation in Richmond at 6:30 before returning south through Williamsburg, Newport News, Hampton, Norfolk and finishing in Virginia Beach at approximately 7 p.m.
The formation will be led by Maj. Joshua “Cabo” Gunderson, F-22 Raptor Demo Team commander, along with two World War II P-51 Mustangs piloted by Jim Beasley Jr. and Andrew McKenna from the Air Force Heritage Flight Foundation.
Military officials recommend residents watch the flyover from the safety of their home quarantine and refrain from traveling to see it.
Inspired by the Air Force Salutes initiative, the flyover is intended to provide a salute to all the healthcare professionals, frontline responders, and essential personnel working to keep everyone healthy and safe during the fight against COVID-19.
