Planned Military Fly Over No Cause for Alarm

This afternoon between 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm, several military jets will conduct low altitude fly over’s in the South Bay, Harbor, and Palos Verdes Peninsula Areas.  The flights commemorate the 70th anniversary of Capt. Charles “Chuck” Yeager’s legendary first supersonic flight on Oct. 14, 1947. 

Edwards Air Force Base is launching two formation flights which are scheduled to pass over Southern California schools, which include several in Lomita Sheriff’s Station jurisdiction, as well as surrounding cities.

The flights are part of a two-day event at Edwards AFB, Family Day October 13th  and the Run with History event October 14th, that mark both the 70th anniversary of supersonic flight and the U.S. Air Force’s 70th Birthday.

The flights may catch some residents off guard, but there is no need for concern.
