Historic warplanes fly over North Texas in salute to frontline workers

The flyover started in Addison at 11 a.m. and ended in Dallas after noon.

Historic warplanes from Cavanaugh Flight Museum flew over North Texas Friday morning to honor frontline workers of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The warplanes started in Addison, flew over Baylor Scott & White Health in Plano and then traveled across Dallas and ended at Dallas-Love Field.

According to Cavanaugh Flight Museum, the flyover consisted of a collection of historic warplanes, including a B-25, P-40, and T-6 formation. 

A privately-owned Beechcraft Starship and the Cessna T-37 Tweet owned by the Service Air Corps also flew over the Dallas-Fort Worth area. 

“We wanted to show how much we appreciate all of our first responders, front-line medical workers, and essential employees during this time of COVID-19 crisis,” said Addison Director of Communications Mary Rosenbleeth.
