The Oregon Air National Guard plans to fly multiple F-15 Eagle airplanes over Madras and Warm Springs on Friday morning as an honor to health care workers, first responders and other essential workers on the front line of the COVID-19 response.
People are encouraged to view the flights from the safety of their own homes and practice physical distancing.
The flyovers are scheduled for 10:05 a.m. at St. Charles Madras and 10:07 a.m. at Warm Springs Health and Wellness Center.
The planes will fly at about 2,000 feet at about 400 mph. The flyovers will incur no additional cost to taxpayers and are done in lieu of regularly scheduled training, according to the national guard.
To date, the Oregon Air National Guard has flown about 1,920 miles covering 53 hospitals and other locations across the state.
