Thunderbirds To Honor Las Vegas COVID-19 Front-Line Workers With Flyover

The U.S. Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron “Thunderbirds” shows their appreciation to COVID-19 front-line workers with a flyover that features eight F-16 Fighting Falcons, according to a news release issued by Nellis Air Force Base. The flyover begins at 2:30 p.m. on Monday and lasts approximately 25 minutes.

Beginning at Nellis Air Force Base, the Thunderbirds soared above the Centennial Hills, Summerlin and Spring Valley areas before passing the Las Vegas Strip toward Henderson.

Residents across the Las Vegas Valley were allowed to watch the aerial show from their homes while keeping physical distance guidelines in mind. The Air Force urges people not to travel to landmarks or gather in groups to watch.
