They flyover every day - it's part of their standard mission since they're stationed here - but good to see as it's much cheaper than flying the Blue Angels around the country spending hundreds of thousands of dollars of our tax payers' money when the money could be used for homeless/unemployed meals and PPE for our health care providers......

The Blue Angels fly everyday, as well. Dozens of people have explained this to you hundreds of times, but you intentionally ignore the facts.

In any event, glad to see even more of our military joining the gratitude tour. The more, the better.

Because they are fun to see, and it's the sound of freedom!

Same way as watching a July 4th parade. It reminds us that despite our petty partisan differences, we are all Americans.


Florida !!

4th of July celebration, huh?

Lot of unemployed wondering where their next meal is coming from - don't care about any flyovers and not in the mood for any celebrations.

It is great to show support for our healthcare workers. Lots of people love military planes. It breaks up the isolation so may are feeling.

BFD? - these things flyover every day. Guess it beats spending millions on an airshow when the money could go to homeless sheltering and meals.
