Air Force F-16 flyover Friday

Posted

In an effort to recognize those on the front lines battling the COVID-19 pandemic, four F-16s from Holloman Air Force Base will conduct a flyover in southern New Mexico, May 15.

The flyover symbolizes appreciation for the healthcare workers, first responders, and other essential personnel for their selfless service, as well as share Holloman’s appreciation for its surrounding communities.

On Friday, May 15, the F-16s will fly in formation over the following cities at these approximate times:

Roswell: 5:25 p.m.

Ruidoso: 5:35 p.m.

Cloudcroft: 5:40 p.m.

Alamogordo/Holloman: 5:45 p.m.

Las Cruces: 6 p.m.

As part of the “Air Force Salutes” campaign, this is a way that Airmen can honor community members who embody the Air Force core value of service before self.

“All the front line workers, from doctors and nurses to truckers and grocery store clerks, are the true heroes of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Col. Joseph Campo, 49th Wing commander.  “I’m honored to offer a gesture to acknowledge their sacrifice and salute them for their selfless service while inspiring the nation to remain strong. Additionally, the flyovers are another way to say thank you to our community for their continued partnership and support.”
