Four F-15C Eagle fighter jets soared above Dominican Hospital recently during a flyover tribute to health care workers, first responders and others on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic.

The California Air National Guard’s 144th Fighter Wing out of Fresno flew over medical facilities in the San Joaquin Valley, Sacramento, the Bay Area, Santa Cruz and Watsonville, before heading to Southern California and the Central Valley and then looping back to Fresno.

At Dominican, numerous employees lined the entranceway wearing masks and hospital attire to watch the aerial display, which lasted about 30 seconds.
