Something very cool is happening in Tuscaloosa this week. The Alabama National Guard will perform a flyover salute over Alabama communities and hospitals on May 5th, between Noon and 1:30p.

What a great way to show appreciation for all of the first responders, healthcare workers, and all other essential workers during this time here in Alabama. There will be two flyovers taking place May 5th. One will be the 187th Fighter Wing with F-16's out of Montgomery, and the other will be the 117th Air Refueling Wing KC-135 aircrafts out of Birmingham.
