BROOKLYN, NY – Yesterday in New York City six F-16C/D Fighting Falcon and six F-18C/D Hornet aircraft performed a flyover to pay respect to the city’s essential frontline workers.
Today’s Maritime Image of the Day was taken by Del Bobish, Executive Vice President / General Manager at Red Hook Terminals which operates two facilities in the Port of NY/NJ complex. You can just see one of the Red Hook container facilities in the foreground of the photo as the jets flyover.
“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 28th,” a press release from the Navy explained.
Del was kind enough to give us permission to use his photo. Here’s a better copy of it below.
