USAF Thunderbirds Add Downtown Flyover

Goldsboro, NC – The USAF Thunderbirds are expected to arrive at approximately 3 p.m. Thursday, April 25. Their arrival includes a flyover of Historic Downtown Goldsboro before landing at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base for this weekend’s Wings Over Wayne Air Show.

“We invite everyone to come to historic downtown Goldsboro and join us in welcoming the Thunderbirds,” said Mayor Chuck Allen. “Seymour Johnson is a stabilizing force in Eastern North Carolina with thousands of fine people intertwined into the region. I believe we have one of the best relationships anywhere in the country between the base and the community.”

Thunderbird fans are encouraged to gather at 2:30 p.m. in Historic Downtown Goldsboro – the flyover will take place at approximately 3 p.m. Center Street from Chestnut to Mulberry streets in Goldsboro will be closed for the flyover. Visitors may bring lawn chairs.
