SEYMOUR JOHNSON AIR FORCE BASE, N.C. (WECT) – Some North Carolina residents likely caught a special tribute to COVID-19 responders Friday by looking up at the sky.
F-15E Strike Eagles from the 4th Fighter Wing did a regional flyover to show appreciation and support for Eastern North Carolina medical professionals and first responders.
The flyover is Seymour Johnson’s salute to the medical professionals, essential-business employees, emergency responders and all American heroes on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19, and also represents a symbol of unity for Eastern North Carolina.
