BOSTON (CBS) – There was a special salute in the sky Wednesday for health care workers across Massachusetts in the coronavirus pandemic.

Just after noon, four F-15 Eagles from the Massachusetts Air National Guard 104th Fighter Wing in Westfield flew over several hospitals to pay tribute to all the men and women on the front lines of the crisis.

It started when they flew over Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis and then Brockton Hospital about 5 minutes later. The jets then made their way to the Boston Hope field hospital at the convention center, Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston before moving on to Framingham, Worcester, Springfield, Holyoke and Northampton.

Many health care workers stepped outside to get a glimpse of the show.

The flyover ended in Westfield at about 12:45 p.m.

    Hundred’s of thousands unemployed, more on the way, seniors passing away every minute in our mismanaged VA systems, locked up like prisoners in our homes and our Governor ranting everyday to stay locked up without a clue. Thanks for the flyover, its crumbs for the people! BTW Charlie hows that 17 person panel doing deflecting blame for you?

    Again Berkshire County is left out. Are we not part of Massachusetts?

      You don’t count, but keeping voting for the same old people! West of Rt 495 is not relevant to Baker!

    Apparently South Shore Hospital isn’t part either..

    Hi, they seemed to alter the flight pattern shown on your site, expected them to be flying along route 9 towards Worcester, instead were more north. Several vehicles with watchers ( at responsible distancing), in the parking lot we waited in, missed them. Disappointed, but was really not for us! Am in my 70’s, have seen them several times, never failed to impress! For some reason, they seem to make me proud to be an American. Something that I’ve lost recently.
