Event Details

Colorado Air National Guard F-16C Vipers will fly over Colorado communities in honor of Memorial Day events Saturday, May 25, and Monday, May 27, 2024.

Flyovers serve as a powerful tribute to military personnel who have died in service to our country. F-16s in formation symbolize strength, vigilance and respect for those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

“Memorial Day flyovers are more than just a display of aerial precision, they are a solemn salute to our fallen heroes,” 140th Wing Commander U.S. Air Force Col. Jeremiah “Weed” Tucker said. “Each pass through the sky honors their bravery and reminds us of the high price paid for our freedom.”

The 140th Wing will launch jets from Buckley Space Force Base, Aurora, Colorado, around 10:00 a.m. and fly until 12:30 p.m.

On May 25, the 140th Wing will perform flyovers at the following event sites:

– Colorado Freedom Memorial, Aurora – 10:00 a.m.

– Silverton Town Park, Silverton – TBD

On May 27, the 140th Wing will perform flyovers at the following event sites:

– Linn Grove Cemetery, Greeley – 10:30 a.m.

– Parker Cemetery, Parker – 10:35 a.m.

– Veterans Memorial Park, Silver Cliff – 10:50 a.m.

– Homelake Cemetery, Monte Vista – 11:00 a.m.

Flyover times are estimates and could also be cancelled due to weather. The aircraft may also be seen between these locations as they transition between Memorial Day celebrations.

Event coordinators from these locations receiving flyovers requested support from the U.S. Air Force’s Aerial Events Office in Washington, D.C. Flyover times are coordinated with event staff and are conducted at no additional cost to the taxpayer. They serve as training for our pilots.
