KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — A new set of flyovers by the Oregon Air National Guard are scheduled for Friday and Monday, combining an ongoing salute to frontline workers and commemoration of Memorial Day.

F-15 Eagle pilots from the 173rd Fighter Wing out of Kingsley Field will handle the southern Oregon flights on Monday, soaring over Klamath Falls, White City, Grants Pass, and Brookings.

"The flyovers are . . . aimed at supporting and thanking healthcare workers, first responders, and other essential workers who are working to keep Oregonians safe and healthy each day," the Air National Guard said in a statement. "The tribute also hopes to unify and boost the spirits of Oregonians and to recognize military members who have lost their lives in service to our country."

Anyone living in and around the listed hospitals and other locations should see and hear the jets. People are encouraged to view the flights from the safety of their own homes and practice physical distancing.
