COVID-19 pandemic formation flight over Philadelphia 4-28-2020


The U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, and the U.S. Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron, the Thunderbirds, honored those on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic with a formation flight over Philadelphia. The salute, from the Air Force and Navy, was  held in honor of healthcare workers, first responders, military, and other essential personnel -- while standing in solidarity with all Americans during this crisis.


I was thrilled to leave the lockdown to cover this event for my wire service


I took these images from the top of the Art Museum steps with a 400 mm lens and a mask on.

I set my shutter speed at an insane 4000th of a second to freeze the jets in mid air.
