The Blue Angels, a flight demonstration squadron of the U.S. Navy, will be conducting a 30-minute flyover above the Greater Houston area on May 6 to recognize the health care providers and first responders who are on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to a May 5 Twitter post by the Blue Angels, the flyover begins at 12:30 p.m. in The Woodlands, will travel south towards Spring and move east owards the Humble area before heading south to the city of Houston. The Blue Angels will then circle the Texas Medical Center and later fly over southwest Houston above Bellaire, Greatwood, Richmond, Cinco Ranch and Jersey Village until heading back southeast towards the City of Houston at 12:55 p.m. The Blue Angels will then travel towards Pasadena and end the flyover in League City at 1 p.m.


The squadron advised Greater Houston area residents to maintain proper social distancing while observing the flyover.

"Residents should observe the flyover from the safety of their home-quarantine and should refrain from traveling to see the flyover," the organization tweeted. "Social distancing should be practiced at all times."

The Blue Angels will also be conducting flyovers in the Dallas-Fort Worth and New Orleans areas on May 6.
