The 146th Airlift Wing participated in Operation America Strong honoring California’s front line COVID-19 responders with a community flyover on May 14. The pilots will fly in salute to health care workers, first responders, and everyone on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19.
A formation of two C-130J Super Hercules aircraft, flown by the 115th Airlift Squadron, began the flyover at approximately 2 p.m. at the Palmdale Regional Medical Facility in Palmdale and continued throughout the state ending with a flyover throughout Ventura County.
“We are so grateful to all of our health care workers serving in our communities,” said U.S. Air Force Col. Keith Chikasawa, 146th Airlift Wing commander. “Please join us as we show our appreciation to local health care workers with a flyover salute, honoring their commitment in providing care to our communities. From all of our airmen serving at the 146th Airlift Wing, you have our most sincere thanks and gratitude. Thank you for your service.”
