While details about Salute to America 2020 are sparse, the DMV can expect a military aircraft flyover on July 4, 2020.

Per a June 26, 2020, statement from the US Department of Defense, cities that played roles in the American Revolution can expect an aerial salute.

“The flyovers will begin in Boston and proceed to New York City, Philadelphia, and Baltimore. From there, they will join other Department of Defense and heritage aircraft in the Salute to America over our nation’s capital.”

Via The Philadelphia Inquirer,

“The joint mission begins at about 4 p.m. in Boston, where the aircraft will fly over the U.S.S. Constitution and Fenway Park. The planes will then head south to New York City over the Hudson River about 5 p.m.

The planes will arrive in Philadelphia from the northeast about 5:15 p.m., flying over Independence Hall and Center City at 1,000 feet above the ground. After passing over Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, the planes will proceed southwest out of the city and fly over Fort McHenry in Baltimore at about 5:30 p.m.

From there the planes will head over Washington D.C. to join with other aircraft in a flyover of the nation’s capital.”
