FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — The 122nd Fighter Wing performed another fly-over to show support for those fighting the coronavirus on Tuesday.

This time, a ship of four A-10 Thunderbolt’s flew from Lafayette to Gary to Michigan City, South Bend and Plymouth before passing over Warsaw and Columbia City. The flight took roughly 41 minutes.

Last week, the 122nd performed a fly-over of Fort Wayne hospitals to show support as part of the Air Force Salutes operation. You can see video of that event below.

The fly-overs are conducted at no additional cost to the taxpayer and serve as “vital” training for pilots, the 122nd said.
