The Air Force Thunderbirds and the Navy's Blue Angels have performed over 92 flyovers in cities across the U.S. to show their gratitude for healthcare workers across the country.
Americans love a good flyover. They're an example of the U.S. military's might and it stirs up feelings of deep patriotism.
These flyovers are also a wonderful marketing and recruiting tool for the military. In fact, the Pentagon pays sports franchises millions in taxpayer dollars to stage them.
