Saturday’s #AmericaStrong flyover with the @usnavyblueangels was dedicated to the brave men and women on the front lines in Baltimore, Washington, D.C. and Atlanta as they battle COVID-19. We can’t thank them enough for their hard work and dedication. Although this is the last of our joint flyovers for now, we are excited to announce that we will continue performing individual team flyovers. Stay tuned for dates and locations in the coming days! ———————————————— #InThisTogether #aviation #military #airforce #instagramaviation #instaaviation #aviation #aviationdaily #avgeek #planespotting #instaplane #fighterjet #aviationphotography
