NORTHAMPTON — Four F-15s from the 104th Fighter Wing based at Barnes Air National Guard Base in Westfield conducted a flyover of several Massachusetts hospitals and medical facilities on Wednesday to pay tribute to health care workers.

“Air Force Salutes flyovers are a way for the U.S. Air Force to show appreciation to the thousands of heroes on the front lines and all our brave Massachusetts neighbors battling and supporting the COVID-19 response,” the 104th Fighter Wing wrote on its Facebook page.
