YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — It was a beautiful sight when we first saw it on Monday. Now, the U.S. Air Force Reserve will once again be saluting Northeast Ohio health care workers.
The 910th Airlift Wing will send up two of its C-130H Hercules aircrafts to fly over various local hospitals on Thursday, just as it did earlier in the week. The second "Hercs Over America" event is a salute to those working on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic.
3News was there to film the marvelous planes zipping across the sky during the first flyover, with locations centering around Cleveland, Akron, and Canton.
The second flyover will have a different route, with the Hercs this time focusing more south and even into Pennsylvania. Here's the list (in order):
- University Hospitals Portage Medical Center, Ravenna
- Summa Health Akron City Hospital
- Aultman Hospital, Canton
- Cleveland Clinic Union Hospital, Dover
- Aultman Alliance Community Hospital
- Salem Regional Medical Center
- East Liverpool Medical City Hospital
- UPMC Jameson, New Castle, Pennsylvania
- UPMC Horizon – Shenango Valley, Farrell, Pennsylvania
- Sharon Regional Medical Center, Pennsylvania
- Southwoods Medical Campus, Boardman
- Akron Children's Hospital Beeghly Campus, Boardman
- Trumbull Regional Medical Center, Warren
- Trumbull Memorial Hospital, Warren
- Hillside Rehabilitation Center, Warren
The flight will occur during one of the 910th's regular training missions. Each hospital will be contacted when the planes approach their skies.
