Less than two weeks after the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds soared over metro Atlanta in a show of support for front-line workers, another flyover will happen this week in Georgia.
On Thursday evening, aircraft from Marietta’s Dobbins Air Reserve Base will fly over North Georgia hospitals “to salute health care workers, first responders and essential workers for their efforts during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.”
According to Dobbins, the Air Force Reserve’s 94th Airlift Wing will fly its C-130s over North Georgia hospitals, beginning in Marietta, and continuing on to Kennesaw, Canton, Jasper, Dalton, Rome, Cartersville and Hiram.
Residents in and around the North Georgia cities will be able to see the flyover from their homes and should follow social distancing guidelines, the Air Reserve Base notes.
These are the approximate times for the C-130 flyover, according to Dobbins:
- 6 p.m.: Depart Dobbins Air Reserve Base

- 6:05 - 6:08 p.m.: Northside Hospital in Canton
