U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Fly Over EPCOT
Posted: Thursday October 29, 2020 1:38pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds flew over Spaceship Earth at EPCOT earlier today as a kickoff for National Veterans and Military Families Month in November.

The flyover took place before park opening to avoid crowds forming, but Disney has shared these photos and video of the event. Footage of their flyover of Walt Disney World will also be used in the Gary Sinise Foundation’s virtual Snowball Express conference in December.

Saw 3 planes over east Apopka while heading to publix. Then I saw 3 flying in formation in the direction of Sandford airport after. Saw this news and thought "cool" but then I realized I saw propeller planes, and not jets, and therefore not the Thunderbirds. Still neat though.

An F-16 cruises at over 500 mph. They can make the flight been Sanford and the Magic Kingdom in about five minutes.
