Atlantans began gathering in Midtown Saturday to catch a glimpse of the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels and the U.S. Air Force's Thunderbirds flyover in honor of people working on the front lines amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The flyover began at 1:35 p.m. and residents in and around metro Atlanta tweeted their excitement over the #AmericaStrong flyover.
Then, picturesque images and videos emerged as the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds flew over Georgia’s capital city. Former Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens and the AJC’s Pete Corson were among those tweeting footage.
