After being cancelled earlier this week, the planned flyover of military aircraft over Bethel, Kotzebue, and Nome has been rescheduled for Friday, May 15.

An HC-130 rescue plane and KC-135 Stratotanker were scheduled to fly over Bethel, Nome, and Kotzebue on Tuesday, May 12. However, the flyover was postponed due to weather in Bethel and Nome.

Meanwhile, the KC-135 will start the flyover in Kotzebue at 1:15 p.m. before heading to Nome at 2 p.m. and finishing over Bethel at 3 p.m.
