The 173rd Fighter Wing out of Kingsley Field in Klamath Falls, Oregon will conduct two flyovers Saturday, April 27.

F-15 Eagle fighter jets are scheduled to conduct a flyover at the Oregon Football Spring Game at the University of Oregon in Eugene at approximately 1:00 p.m.  They will then perform a flyover at the Regional Track Meet at Grants Pass High School in Grants Pass at approximately 1:28 p.m. 

All passes will be approximately 1,000 feet above ground level and about 400 mph airspeed. Flights could be cancelled or times changed due to inclement weather or operational contingencies.
