FRIDAY: Watch skies over the Phoenix area for a historic warbird flyover

If you missed the Luke Air Force Base flyover that honored health care workers in the Valley, you're in luck.

The Commemorative Air Force will conduct a historic warbird flyover over the Valley on Friday. 

It will be held to commemorate the 75th anniversary of victory in Europe, or the end of World War II.

It will also be held to "salute the enduring spirit of Arizonans throughout history — including their strength and community spirit while dealing with the COVID 19 public health emergency."

The three large aircraft will launch from Falcon Field in Mesa around 8:20 a.m. before heading west over central Mesa, then to south metro, the West Valley, north metro and East Valley.

Included in the flyover salute is Mesa cemetery, where U.S. and British are buried, the state Capitol over the USS Arizona monument, the National Cemetery and several communities around the area.

The entire route is expected to take about one hour.
