Blue Angels And Thunderbirds Release Flyover Routes/Times For Saturday, May 2nd

US Air Force Thunderbirds and US Navy Blue Angels - AirshowStuff

The US Air Force Thunderbirds and US Navy Blue Angels have released their planned flight routes and scheduled flyover times for their special joint flyovers above Baltimore, Washington DC, and Atlanta tomorrow (May 2)! Take a look at the images below and make your plans to see them, but remember to respect social distancing guidelines and keep everyone safe!

These flyovers are part of Operation America Strong, an effort by the military to salute health care and essential workers across the country. The two demonstration teams first presented a very rare joint flyover of New York City and Philadelphia on Tuesday. Additional destinations are expected to be announced in the coming weeks, but flyovers are only being confirmed about 48 hours in advance. Other military units are also presenting flyovers of their home towns and states.

We have an up to date list of all military salute flyovers here on our blog – make sure to check it often for updates!

    Over the last week, the Blues have been joined by the Air Force Thunderbirds in flying over other parts of the country. They were scheduled to fly over Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Kingsville and Corpus Christi this weekend but accord to NAS-Kinsgville officials, those flights were canceled.

    On Friday, NAS-Kingsville officials posted, “The #AmericaStrong flyovers of Kingsville and Corpus Christi were canceled to allow the teams to focus on large metro areas that have been hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Has the Pacific Northwest part of America Strong been cancelled? Portland and Seattle were mentioned early on, now I can find nothing on the interwebs. While the Blue Angels come to Seattle every summer (except this one), there are many of us here who completely understand they’re an only slightly inferior imitation of the Thunderbirds. 🙂

      It’s tough to say it has been cancelled; it was never officially confirmed to begin with. They aren’t planning any more flyovers as they are now focusing on practicing in hopes of starting up the show season. For what it’s worth, I’m very surprised neither team made it up that way. A little puzzling.
