SJAFB To Honor COVID-19 Responders With Flyover

- April 30, 2020

F-15E Strike Eagles from the 4th Fighter Wing at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base will show appreciation and support for Eastern North Carolina medical professionals and first responders during a regional flyover this Friday, May 1.

Residents will be able to observe the tribute from the safety of their own neighborhoods, and are asked to practice social distancing guidelines, not gather in groups, and wear masks around persons other than those living in their household. Citizens are asked to refrain from traveling to the physical locations of the flyovers, as this may hinder emergency vehicles from safely traveling to hospitals in those areas.

In Wayne County, the Strike Eagles are scheduled to fly over Wayne Memorial Hospital in Goldsboro at 10:23 AM on Friday.

The flyover is Seymour Johnson’s salute to the medical professionals, essential-business employees, emergency responders and all American heroes on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19, and also represents a symbol of unity for Eastern North Carolina.
