908th Airlift Wing to conduct Huntsville flyover today

HUNTSVILLE – Two C-130 Hercules aircraft from the 908th Airlift Wing will conduct a flyover above the Huntsville area today to honor the frontline heroes in the COVID-19 response.

“We wanted to show our support for all of the great Alabamians doing everything they can in this fight against COVID19,” explained Col. Craig Drescher, commander of the 908th Airlift Wing. We continue to hear all these amazing stories of people stepping up and going above and beyond their civic duty and we wanted to find a way to say thank you.”
The best way for the 908th to say thank you was to find a way to incorporate the thank you into already scheduled training missions.
“We have members from all over the state, so we wanted to find a way to say thank you to the state and not just our home base city of Montgomery,” said Drescher.
The two-ship formation will fly over the following cities in this order; Montgomery, Tuscaloosa, Muscle Shoals, Florence, Decatur, Huntsville, Birmingham, Auburn, Troy, and Selma.
They are expected to fly over Huntsville Hospital and Crestwood Medical Center between 12:30 and 12:40.
