It was an amazing sight to see! Now, another chance to check out an amazing flyover is coming this Saturday.

Get your cameras ready!

The National Warplane Museum says it will be conducting a series of flyovers on May 16th to thank essential workers all over Western New York. They’re calling it – Operation “Thanks From Above” and the formation will fly over hospitals, parks, Veterans Affairs locations and other notable venues – in Buffalo, Syracuse and Rochester!

The museum’s Douglas C-47, which was the lead aircraft in the second wave of the D-Day invasion on June 6th, 1944 over Normandy, will begin in Geneseo, pass through the southtowns and Chautauqua County, and then over Buffalo, Niagara Falls, and through Orleans and Genesee counties for its morning flight.


Flights like this are taking place all around the country to show gratitude and support for those on the front lines.

The museum is reminding everyone to adhere to proper social distancing guidelines while watching the flight.

The museum will announce when the flights will start later this week. We will keep you posted! Until then – here is a look at the flight map.
