To mark the 70th Anniversary of Captain Chuck Yeager's 1st supersonic flight on October 14th, 1947, Edwards Air Force Base is launching tow formation flights that are scheduled to pass over the Antelope Valley and other parts of Southern California on Friday October 13th.
The 1st formation- 2 F16's, a B-1B and an F-18 Hornet- will fly over the Antelope Valley and the following schools between 12:00pm-12:20pm: Eastside Elementary, Enterprise Elementary, Eastside High School, Joshua Elementary, Sunnydale Elementary, Amargosa Creek Middle School, Lancaster High School, Westpark Elementary and Rosamond High School.
The 2nd formation - an F-16, F-15, F-22 and F-35- is scheduled to fly a flight path over several So Cal cities including Colton, Riverside, Costa Mesa, Long Beach, Agoura Hills and Simi Valley to name a few.
Both flight paths will be at an altitude low enough for easy viewing. For more information and for updated flight times, check out Edward's link at 70ssf.412tw.us.
If you get a chance to step out tomorrow during your lunch time, see if you can spot this awesome fly over!
