Navy, Air Force to fly over Haddonfield on Tuesday

Twelve jets from the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels and the U.S. Air Force’s Thunderbirds will fly over Haddonfield on Tuesday (April 28), to salute frontline COVID-19 workers.

The flight is one of two the flight demonstration squadrons will make during the day. The first, scheduled to start at 12n, will be in the region of Newark and New York City. The second, over Trenton and Philadelphia, is scheduled to begin at 1:45pm at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.

A map of the proposed route shows the straight-line flight path from Center City Philadelphia curving to the left at I-295, crossing Route 30, and then — apparently — following Route 41 (Kings Highway, west to east) over Haddonfield, turning left again to cross Route 70, and back over the Delaware River to north Philadelphia.

The exact time of the Haddonfield-area flyover is not known, but it is likely to be between 2:00pm and 2:05pm.

The Navy and Air Force urge residents to “observe the flyover from the safety of their home-quarantine and … refrain from traveling to see the flyover. Social distancing should be practiced at all times.”

The flyover concludes at about 2:15pm in the area of Wilmington DE.

The weather forecast for Tuesday is “mostly sunny,” with a high in “the low 60s.”
