San Antonio will witness another flyover.
The Lewis Air Legends are coordinating a flyover to honor military heroes on Memorial Day in the Alamo City. The Lewis Air Legends are part of Rod Lewis’ flying museum of World War II-era warbirds.
The flyover route includes the downtown area and the Stinson Municipal Airport. The four WWII-era planes are planning to take to the skies at noon on Monday, weather permitting.
The flyover route will start over the Interstate 10 and Loop 1604 corridor, then fly south to Kelly Field, turn north circling downtown businesses and neighborhoods, and finish over Fort Sam National Cemetery.
A news release says residents should be able to see the 30-minute flyover from their homes and should refrain from traveling to landmarks, hospitals and gathering in large groups to view the flyover.
This events marks the second flyover in recent weeks. San Antonians were treated to a flyover last week when the Air Force’s Thunderbirds soared through the local skies to honor frontline workers in the battle against the coronavirus.
