Navy and Air Force Debut New Flyover Formation
Catch Greg and Audra weekdays at 9 a.m. on Carolina AM
The Air Force and Navy are forming a closer tie by teaming up for training and making cross country flyovers for hospitals and other centers to salute men and women who fight every single day on the front line. They recently debuted a super-formation called the Blue Angels Delta Formation that combines primary jets from each team on each wing. The combined formation includes the primary six jets from each team, with the six F/A-18E/F Super Hornets that now make up the Blue Angels Delta at its center, and two formations of three Thunderbird Block 52 F-16C/D Vipers on each wing. Flyovers are an American tradition for events like World Series, National Championships, NASCAR races and dignitary funerals. Audra’s brother has been part flyovers during his military career as an F-18 pilot with Squadrons VFA-97 , VFA-106, VFC-12 and VFC-111.
