The Tennessee National Guard will conduct a statewide flyover on Tuesday to salute and honor medical professionals in the state for their work during the coronavirus pandemic.
A C-17 from the 164th Air Lift Wing out of Memphis and a KC-135 from the 134th Air Refueling Wing out of Knoxville will fly over major cities and hospitals as they make their way across the state, according to a tweet from the national guard.
Anyone living in and around the cities of Nashville, Memphis, Chattanooga and Knoxville should see and hear the aircraft. A map shows the planes flying over downtown Chattanooga and Erlanger and CHI Memorial hospitals.
