This Friday, get ready to look up and salute healthcare workers as F-16s will fly over Las Cruces, NM.

Over the last few weeks all over social media, we have seen F-16s flying across cities saluting medical and healthcare workers across America.

Coming up this Friday, May 15th four F-16s from Holloman Air Force Base will take to the skies in southern New Mexico as a tribute to honor all our frontline healthcare workers battling the COVID 19 pandemic.

The flyover will include Roswell, Ruidoso, Cloudcroft, Alamogordo, and Las Cruces, NM.

The flyover schedule is as follows:

  • 5:25 p.m. – Roswell, NM
  • 5:35 p.m. – Ruidoso, NM
  • 5:40 p.m. – Cloudcroft, NM
  • 5:45 p.m. – Alamogordo and Holloman, NM
  • 6 p.m. – Las Cruces, NM

Our neighbors in Las Cruces will be able to look up to the sky late Friday afternoon to watch the impressive F-16s salute our healthcare heroes.

In the last couple of months since the onset of the coronavirus that has arrested our daily lives – medical and healthcare workers have been on the frontlines taking care of patients and not just putting themselves at risk but also having to self-isolate from their kids, partners, and families. The military flyovers across the country are just one of the ways that we are all coming together to spotlight and support healthcare providers because they are the national heroes who are caring for others during this pandemic and we are forever grateful to them.
