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.
Below is a breakdown of the schedule:
- Carrollton Regional Medical Center: 11:30 a.m.
