原文:

High in the skies over Las Vegas, the U.S. Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron-also known as the ‘Thunderbirds’-showed its support on April 11 for those on the frontlines responding to the coronavirus pandemic.

The flyover on Saturday featured eight F-16 Fighting Falcons, which soared throughout Las Vegas starting at 2:30 p.m. and lasted about 25 minutes.

The Thunderbirds said the flyover was to show appreciation and support of the 685,000 total force Airmen of the USAF for health care workers, first responders and other essential personnel in Sin City and around the nation working in the battle against COVID-19. It is an honor to fly for the American true heroes at the forefront of our nation's fight against the coronavirus.
