MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin Air National Guard's 115th Fighter Wing is planning a flyover in support of health care workers and first responders during the coronavirus pandemic.
The flyover will be performed with four F-16 Fighting Falcons on Tuesday, May 12.
“The 115th Fighter Wing is proud to serve our state and nation, especially during times of emergency, and we are excited to be able to show our gratitude to our partners and heroes in our communities," said Col. Jon Kalberer, 115th Operations Group commander, in a news release.
The flyover is part of Operation American Resolve, a nationwide campaign, designed to show appreciation for the thousands of heroes on the frontlines, as well as the brave citizens and neighbors who have been battling and supporting the COVID-19 response.
The 115th Fighter Wing plans to go all over the state, flying over Kenosha, Green Bay, La Crosse and Madison, among other cities.
The National Guard is asking everyone viewing the flyover to maintain all social distancing recommendations and guidelines set forth in the “Safer At Home” order.
The flyover is weather dependent.
