(KATU-TV ABC-2) – The Oregon Air National Guard says its fighter pilots in F-15 Eagles will fly over hospitals across the state again Friday to salute frontline workers.
The flyovers are a joint effort between Oregon’s 173rd Fighter Wing, based in Klamath Falls, and the 142nd Wing, based in Portland.
The flights are done in conjunction with regularly scheduled training and will incur no additional cost to taxpayers.
