Thunderbirds commander Lt. Col. John Caldwell said this regarding the flyover, “It is an honor for our team to salute the countless Californians who have committed to keeping the communities safe during this difficult time in our nation. We hope to give onlookers a touching display of American resolve that honors those serving on the frontline our fight against COVID-19.”
According to a report in the Air Force Time, the flyovers are meant to serve as a morale boost for citizens who have been staying at home to limit the spread of the coronavirus. The Thunderbirds last flew over San Antonio and Austin last week and before that New York City, Washington, Baltimore and Atlanta.
