JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - To honor the men and women on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19, the Little Rock Air Force Base tipped its wings over Jonesboro Friday afternoon.
On Friday, May 8, the 19th Airlift Wing and the 913th Airlift Group flew over several hospitals from one side of the state to the other.
They flew over several hospitals in Region 8, including Arkansas Methodist Medical Center in Paragould, Arkansas Continued Care Hospital, NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital and St. Bernards Medical Center in Jonesboro.
The flyover, according to the base, was to express Team Little Rock’s “heartfelt thank you to our Arkansas first responders and healthcare workers.”
