Watch 3 Vintage WWII Era Fighter Planes Take to the Skies Over Boise
The three-day, Memorial Day Weekend is sneaking up on us. You may be headed up 55 to celebrate the unofficial start of summer in McCall, camping or just sticking close to the Treasure Valley. If you're in town on Memorial Day Monday, you're in for quite the treat!
The Warhawk Air Museum in Nampa is preparing for its annual Memorial Day Flyover recognizing the service and sacrifice of Treasure Valley Veterans and honoring the healthcare heroes who've worked tirelessly throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic. As part of the tribute, three WWII-era fighter planes will fly over eleven different cemeteries and hospitals from Nampa to Boise. The flyover starts just before 11 a.m. and will pass by the side (south or west) of each of the hospitals. Here's a look at the route:
