Wednesday's flyovers are part of a nationwide effort to recognize healthcare workers, emergency responders, food industry and other essential workers.
"Our crews must fly regularly to maintain their proficiency," said Colonel James Cleet, 133rd Air Wing Commander in the release. "This is an outstanding way to both train our aircrew and to recognize those in our community that are on the frontline working hard for the citizens of Minnesota."
The flyovers are scheduled to be over local medical facilities in the following communities: Brainerd, Coon Rapids, Fridley, Little Falls, Minneapolis, Monticello, Hastings, Robbinsdale, Rochester, Saint Cloud, Saint Louis Park, Saint Paul, Stillwater, White Bear Lake, and Woodbury. According to the release, other communities around the state will have flyovers later in the month.
