Military Plane Flyover This Friday
Posted 10/11/17

To mark the 70th anniversary of Capt. Charles “Chuck” Yeager’s legendary first supersonic flight on Oct. 14, 1947, Edwards Air Force Base is launching two formation flights which are scheduled to pass over Southern California schools October 13.  Some local schools will be part of the flyover, including Mann, Burbank, Lincoln, Roosevelt and Washington.  The flights will take place between noon and 1 p.m.  General information (a media advisory) is provided in the first attachment.  The second attachment is a full list of schools that are part of the same flyover.  The Long Beach Unified School District is providing this notice to all of its schools so that everyone can anticipate the jet noise.
