A week or so ago, The Blue Angels did a flyover cross the Dallas-Fort Worth area, but we couldn't see them in Addison. The Town of Addison and Cavanaugh Flight Museum, located in Addison, have teamed up for an Addison Salute to Heroes flyover to recognize first responders, veterans, and essential workers. Look upwards in Addison on Friday, May 22, 2020 at 11:00 am.
Some of the historic war planes from the Cavanaugh Museum's collection flying over will include a B-25, P-40, T-6, T-28, a T-37 owned by the Service Air Corps, and a privately owned Beechcraft Starship. Addison based Million Air Dallas generously provided the fuel for the flyover.
The planes will take off from Addison Airport where some of Addison's first responders will be watching from the ramp at the Flight Museum. The pilots will head north of the airport, fly over Beltline Road, and fly over 7 area hospitals and the DFW National Cemetery before landing back at Addison Airport around 12:30 pm.
Here's the approximate timeline for the planned route:
11:30 Carrollton Regional Medical Center
11:34 Texas Health Presbyterian Plano
11:37 Beltline Road
11:40 Baylor Scott and White Plano
11:45 Medical City Dallas
11:48 Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas
11:52 Baylor University Medical Center
11:57 VA North Texas Health Care
12:03 DFW National Cemetery
12:10 Dallas Love Field
This flyover will kick off Memorial Day weekend. Stay safe and healthy everyone! And huge thanks to those who keep us safe and healthy!
