MEDINA – Joyce McCabe took this photo of the U.S. Air Force flyover at about 11:30 a.m. in Medina.

McCabe took the photo from Salt Works Road as the planes headed towards the Lockport hospital, the beginning of a flyover over several hospitals in Western New York.

The planes include a KC-135 from the 914th Air Refueling Wing’s 328th Air Refueling Squadron at Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station, and F-35s from the Vermont Air National Guard.

The flyover honors all of those working on the front lines during the Covid-19 crisis.

McCabe said it was quite a sight to see the planes in formation.

“It was so awesome,” she said. “It was absolutely an amazing experience.”

Jeff Andrews of Albion took this photo at 12:01 p.m. of the planes in formation over the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.
