Alabama National Guard completes flyover for area hospitals

Alabama National Guard flyovers

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - The Alabama National Guard made up a flyover over north Alabama on Thursday.

The National Guard had planned to fly a KC-135R Stratotanker from the 117th Air Refueling Wing over Huntsville Hospital on Tuesday but the flight was canceled due to weather. The National Guard had initially said Tuesday’s flyover happened but was unseen due to cloud cover. Wednesday morning they confirmed that Tuesday’s flyover had actually not taken place at all in Huntsville. The flyover did happen Tuesday as scheduled in the Birmingham area.

Thursday’s make-up flyover was set to include four hospitals in the north Alabama area:

Decatur Morgan – 10:30 a.m.

Madison – 10:33 a.m.

Huntsville Downtown – 10:38 a.m.

Crestwood – 10:39 a.m.

Our teams viewed Decatur, Huntsville, and Crestwood flyovers, but were not able to view the flyover at Madison. The video above is the flyover of Huntsville and Crestwood.

This mission was a part of the nationwide Air Force Salutes Flyover under Operation American Resolve.
