Look up in the sky. Is it a bird? Nope. Is it a plane? Actually, yes…several airplanes who are supporting Independence Day observances . Warriors of the 140th Wing, Colorado Air National Guard will fly their super-cool F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft around Colorado cities and towns on Tuesday, July 4, 2023, from 10 a.m. t0 12:30 p.m.
The 140th Wing will launch the jets from Buckley Space Force Base at around 10 a.m.
The formation of fighters will fly over select Colorado communities until approximately 12:30 p.m. when they will return to base.
We couldn’t get an exact schedule, but this is the list of communities expecting the flyovers (you should hear them coming!):
Aurora – 10 a.m. (departing Buckley Space Force Base)
Denver Metro Area
Aurora – 12:30 p.m. (returning Buckley Space Force Base)
Due to safety considerations, weather and visibility can impact the flyover schedule, including cancellation.
