Maine Air National Guard Flyover MDI Hospital Thursday May 14
If you didn't see the KC-135 aircraft from the 101st Air Refueling Wing in Bangor flying over Bar Harbor on Tuesday there was a reason, it wasn't there! Apparently there was a change in the flight plan, and it was never communicated to everyone.
However, the Maine Air National Guard announced on Wednesday, May 13th that they are going to make up for the change, and will be flying over MDI Hospital on Thursday, May 14th at 11:15 a.m.
It will then travel to Machias and Downeast Community Hospital at 11:25 before heading up North to Houlton, Presque Isle, Fort Kent and then coming back via Caribou, Millincoket, Lincoln and Dover-Foxcroft.
Colonel Frank Roy said in a press release "We are looking forward to continuing our tribute and are pleased that we were able to make some additions to the flight path. With its aerial refueling mission, the KC-135 Stratotanker adds worldwide range to American air power. With that in mind, we hope this small token of appreciation helps inspire front line workers and all Mainers that we are in this for the long haul, and we are all in it together."
