It would be the city’s second flyover in two months.

You may remember the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds soared over the city in April to pay tribute to workers on the frontlines of the pandemic.

Details of the latest flyover, including the timing, haven’t been revealed yet but we of course will let you know when they are.
