WATCH: Thunderbirds fly over San Antonio to thank front line responders to coronavirus pandemic
Thunderbirds also took flight over Austin
SAN ANTONIO – All eyes were on the skies of San Antonio on Wednesday afternoon as residents hoped to get a glimpse of the Air Force Thunderbirds take flight over the Alamo City.
Residents camped out with lawn chairs at various places across San Antonio armed with binoculars ready to watch the flyover of the popular F-16 Fighting Falcons. Others watched from their homes and apartments.
The flyover is part of America Strong, a collaborative salute from the Navy and Air Force to recognize healthcare workers, first responders and other essential personnel in a show of national solidarity during the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you didn’t get a chance to see the aerial show, you can watch it in the video player above from SKY 12.
Inclement weather in the forecast pushed back the originally scheduled start time from 1:20 to 2:20 p.m. The Thunderbirds were originally scheduled to fly over Austin and San Antonio Tuesday but stormy weather pushed back the flyover an additional day.
If you get good pictures or video of the flyover, upload them here with KSAT Connect and we may use them on air or on our website.
