F-15 Eagles with the Oregon Air National Guard 142nd Wing may fly over Lincoln City Friday as part of its Veteran’s Day flyovers.

“We appreciate the opportunity to honor those that have served before us,” 142nd Wing Commander, Colonel Todd Hofford, said. “The demonstration of air superiority on this day is a great reminder to us all how fortunate we are to be citizens of this country. These patriotic flyovers are courtesy of your Hometown Air Force.”

The fighters will be around 1,000 feet at 400 mph.

Homepage reached out to the 142nd Wing and asked them to flyover Lincoln City on their way to Tillamook. They have flown over Lincoln City before, so don’t be surprised if they make another appearance.

The Portland Air National Guard Base employs 1,500 Airmen who provide an economic impact of nearly $500 million to the region. The 142nd Wing defends our homeland with F-15 Eagle fighter jets, guarding the Pacific Northwest skies from northern California to the Canadian border through their Aerospace Control Alert mission as part of Air Combat Command and the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). Their mission is to provide unequalled, mission-ready units to sustain combat aerospace superiority and peacetime tasking any time, any place in service to our nation, state and community.
