FYI Military Fly Over

Thunderbirds, Blue Angels to Salute New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania COVID-19 Responders
NAS PENSACOLA, Fla. – The U.S. Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron, the Thunderbirds, and the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, will honor frontline COVID-19 responders and essential workers with formation flights over New York City, Newark, Trenton and Philadelphia April 28.
“We are truly excited to take to the skies with our Navy counterparts for a nation-wide tribute to the men and women keeping our communities safe,” said U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. John Caldwell, Thunderbird 1 and mission commander for the flyover. “We hope to give Americans a touching display of American resolve that honors those serving on the frontline of our fight with COVID-19.”

A formation of 6 F-16C/D Fighting Falcon and 6 F/A-18C/D Hornet aircraft will conduct these flyovers as a collaborative salute to healthcare workers, first responders, military, and other essential personnel while standing in solidarity with all Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are incredibly honored to have the opportunity to salute those working on the frontline of the COVID-19 response, we are in awe of your strength and resilience,” said Cmdr. Brian Kesselring, U.S. Navy Blue Angels commanding officer and flight leader. “Thank you to all of those in essential industries keeping our nation moving forward. We will get through this. We are all in this together.”
This mission, the first of several planned over the coming weeks, is the culmination of more than a month of planning and coordination between the two teams and numerous city and government offices.
Residents along the flight path can expect a few seconds of jet noise as the aircraft pass overhead, along with the sight of 12 high-performance aircraft flying close in precise formation.
Flyovers in Newark, New York City and surrounding boroughs will start at noon (EDT) and last approximately 35 minutes.
Flyovers in Trenton will start at 1:45 p.m. (EDT) and last approximately 10 minutes.
Flyovers in Philadelphia will start at 2 p.m. (EDT) and last approximately 20 minutes.
Residents in these areas will be able to see the flyover from the safety of their home-quarantine and should maintain all social distancing guidelines during this event. They should also refrain from traveling to landmarks, hospitals and gathering in large groups to view the flyover. A detailed flight route will be released on the day prior to the flyover.
The teams welcome and encourage viewers to tag the flyover on social media with the hashtag #AmericaStrong.

Please read this piece that the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office has shared to the community. Everyone please be safe.

We would like to thank the residents of Burlington County for their cooperation concerning the public safety restrictions implemented by the Governor to help ease the spread of COVID-19. We are starting to see glimmers of hope that this awful pandemic is relaxing its grip on our region, in no small part due to our collective efforts to stay home and practice social distancing. Our local police departments have done a tremendous job engaging with their residents about the restrictions of the Executive Orders during this public health emergency. Our motto is to encourage compliance and address defiance.

One issue that has created confusion about compliance with the current social distancing requirements and the restrictions on non-essential travel outside the home are so-called birthday and teacher drive-by parades. These parades have proven to be big pick-me-ups to students missing their teachers, teachers missing their students, and people whose birthdays have fallen during this period of extreme social distancing when they cannot celebrate with family and friends the way they ordinarily would. We have also seen our first responders organize parades to honor and thank our tireless healthcare workers, who have played such a huge, selfless role in treating the many people sickened by COVID-19 in such a short time. They even have been used as a way to mourn and honor the dead during this time when proper memorial services are not feasible.

Drive-by parades generally have been approved throughout New Jersey as being in compliance with the Executive Orders. Governor Murphy has described these parades as “touching,” but, understandably, he has cautioned that they should be done “in moderation,” so we don’t lose sight of our critical goal of staying home, staying healthy, and ending this pandemic as soon as possible, and with as few losses as possible.

We believe Governor Murphy has struck the right chord for drive-by parades, and to address the open questions about them, we provide the following guidance for Burlington County: Drive-by parades should be done in moderation. Any drive-by parade must observe the requirements of social distancing, including that there be no “gathering” of more than 10 people, and no clustering of cars ahead of time to “marshal” for the parade. It should be organized prior to the date through instructions communicated via social media, email, texts, phone calls, etc. Vehicles should be staggered (with only family members or no more than 1 or 2 people in them), with times set for each one to drive by (one at 6:15, one at 6:16, and so on). Vehicles should not linger or congregate after driving by.

To be clear, we are not encouraging drive-by parades, because the best advice for all is simply to stay home until we break the back of the coronavirus pandemic. However, we want to offer consistent guidance throughout the County so people considering engaging this activity do so safely and in a manner that complies with the Governor’s Executive Orders. Remember – we encourage compliance, and will address defiance.
