原文:

Flyovers aren't just for the Air Force Thunderbirds and the Navy Blue Angels flight demonstration teams. Bomber units attached to Air Force Global Strike Command are gearing up to salute health care workers and first responders on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic fight in a series of flyovers across three states this late April.

First up: B-2 Spirit bombers from the 509th Bomb Wing on Tuesday will be accompanied by A-10 Thunderbolt IIs from the U.S. Air Force Reserve's 442nd Fighter Wing and T-38 Talon's assigned to the 13th Bomb Squadron, for a flight over Kansas City. Beginning at 10:18 a.m. local time, the stealth bombers will pass over the Centerpoint Medical Center.
