The  U.S. Navy Blue Angels and the U.S. Air Force’s Thunderbirds flight demonstration squadrons honored those on the frontline of COVID-19 with a formation flight over Christiana Hospital early Tuesday afternoon, streaking down from hospital flyovers in neighboring Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York.

The salute honored health care workers, first responders, military and other essential personnel for their sacrifices and risks taken, standing together with all Americans during the pandemic crisis threatening the nation and the world.
