The Oklahoma Air National Guard is set to perform flyovers as a thank you and salute to all healthcare workers, first responders and other essential personnel on the front lines during the coronavirus pandemic.

Multiple flyovers were conducted on Thursday, April 30, by the Oklahoma Air National Guard's 138th Fighter Wing.

“This is our way of showing our gratitude and thanks to all of the doctors, nurses, medical staff and first responders who are selflessly and tirelessly working to keep Oklahoma safe and healthy during this pandemic,” Maj. Gen. Michael Thompson, adjutant general for Oklahoma, said. “Thank you for your service to the people of our great state, and for showing how strong Oklahoma can be when we are all working together.”

Below is a list of times and locations in northeast Oklahoma where the four F-16 fighter jets will be passing over:
