KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Fourth of July celebrations across Oregon this year will be graced with Air National Guard flyovers, according to a statement from the Oregon Military Department (OMD).

While the 142nd Fighter Wing out of Portland will be serving celebrations in Oregon's northern reaches, Southern Oregon will see flyovers by F-15 Eagle jets from the 173rd Fighter Wing out of Kingsley Field in Klamath Falls.

Passes by those F-15s typically happen at about 1,000 feet above the ground, with an airspeed of 400 miles per-hour. Flights could be canceled or delayed due to inclement weather or "operational contingencies," according to OMD.
