President Trump announced the mission, named Operation America Strong, after it was reported on Wednesday afternoon. He said that the mission was “the idea of our great military men and women,” and will recognize health-care workers.AD

“This is a tribute to them, to our warriors because they’re equal warriors to those incredible pilots and all of the fighters that we have for the more traditional flights that we win,” Trump said.

The Following information is all preliminary that was included in a flight plan leaked this week. The United State Navy and United States Air Force are planning a special flyby happening in the near future as a display of National Unity amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.

The United States Navy Blue Angels and United States Air Force Thunderbirds will be doing a combined Fly-BY. They will be conducting a low level flight (500- 1000 agl) when this does happen from TTN to ILG.

This historic formation will consist of 15 aircraft: 8 USAF F-16s and 7 USN Blue Angels. They will fly in two 6 shape diamond formations.. Each diamond will be around 1 minute in trail and have smoke streaming from all aircrafts.

This run will begin at Joint Base McGuire/Dix/Lakehurst then onto Trenton. Then fly south over the Delaware River, over the Ben Franklin Bridge with a right hand 360º turn over Center City. They will exit the Downtown Philadelphia Area and follow the River past Philadelphia International Airport towards Wilmington De.

Traffic into and out of PHL will be stopped for the 15-20 Minute Flight.

    1. Reschedule- all we know is that Operation America Strong will be happening in the near future!

  1. First , I wept with JOY! My Angels were coming!! I have been in love with them for 51 years, MY ANGELS! I picked my grandsons up for home schooling and we came home to watch my Angels on YouTube , THEY’RE COMING!! We had our spot picked out to watch and I cried all the way through the video . Then…. they canceled. No more joy, I wept for a half hour. My Angels are not coming. I had COLOR … something to look forward to. Now… I’m back to grey and black. My Angels are not coming.

  2. Was excited to go sit in car an watch , such talent. Always wanted to go see over ocean never got there.can you email me when have new date. STAY SAFE! THANK YOU

  3. There was never any official anything that the “delayed” event was ever planned!

    And considering what it would take – a waffle pattern to make it visible for the area (otherwise a flyover is seen by very few …. and for seconds…) – a “it’s a secret” event like this would only make BAD WILL….for all those disturbed by it…and then of course – all those that missed it.

    Why would they possibly keep anything like this a “secret”?

    1. It was planned but reschedule. Operation America Strong will be happening in the near future!

  4. My dad was air force and took me too all the air shows. I loved them! I am essential and work in a hospital. I hope to be able to view this as it would be an honor

  5. Weird, the Navy came out and said that this was a big rumor, unsubstantiated, and had nothing to do with them. Seems like you’re full of it

    1. Ummmm actually they did speak about it when we spoke to the Navy and Air Force Officials. Funny how two days after we posted this the President has spoken about it, and the Pentagon has released information…
