A special military air convoy is scheduled to fly over south-central Kansas on Wednesday morning.
Two KC-135 Stratotankers and a KC-46 Pegasus tanker from McConnell Air Force Base along with the restored B-29 bomber known as “Doc” are taking part in the flight.
The team wants to honor health care workers, first responders and other essential personnel for their response to the COVID-19 crisis.
The aircraft will fly over 11 hospitals in Wichita, Derby, Newton, Andover, Garden Plain, Haysville and El Dorado. The flight begins around 10 a.m. and lasts about an hour.
