  1. As awesome as it is to see these planes and pilots, I can’t help but admire the thousands of people that support and maintain these planes and pilots. They are just as awesome.

  2. Looked like they were flying slow. In Colorado they came over head pretty quick. It was awesome to see!

  3. I was raised in Brooklyn and have never seen the skies so clear in NY. It’s also strange not to see aircraft in motion. Our prayers to all first responders our national hero’s.

    So much for social distancing at the end. To see jets skip to 11minute mark

    Could there be any more waste of time than the first 11 minutes of this video?

    The first 11 minutes shows a squadron of Romulan Warbirds flying in stealth-mode.
