Tomorrow at 1:00 pm, FOUR F-16 “Vipers” from the 77th Fighter Squadron “The Gamblers” of the 20th Fighter Wing based at Shaw AFB will fly over the entire South Carolina coast. We will capture as much footage of the flyover as possible from the air and from the ground for inclusion in a video that will be posted for all to see.
WHEN IS THE SALUTE FROM THE SHORE ? The Flyover starts July 4th at 1:00 PM.
WHERE IS THE SALUTE? The Salute will be visible from every beach in South Carolina. It will start at the NC state line at 1:00 and fly south, ending at Hilton Head Island at 1:20. However, be sure to arrive early to prepare your Salute so we can capture you on video from the Air! Helicopters will be filming certain areas starting as early as noon.
The VFW post on Isle of Palms will also feature a videographer on the ground who will video “Salutes.”
Got to the “How to Salute” page on our website for details on how to Salute from the Shore!
Remember, this is all about honoring our armed forces, and we want them to hear from you and see pictures and video of YOUR Salute to our armed forces on Independence Day.
