DENVER — The Colorado National Guard will fly a formation of F-16 Fighting Falcons over a wide swath of the state on Monday to commemorate Memorial Day.
The flyovers are estimated to occur between 10:45 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. Monday over Denver, Boulder, Brighton, Thornton, Parker and Monte Vista.
This year, Colorado National Guard is celebrating 100 years of aviation in Colorado.
"Flyovers are a tradition during patriotic holiday observances that show dedication and support to community, state and nation as well as showcase the air power of the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Air National Guard," said a statement from the Colorado Air National Guard.
The Colorado National Guard said the flyovers serve as training for the pilots and don’t cost taxpayers extra money.
