Two C-130Js from Little Rock Air Force Base will perform a flyover at FedExField prior to kick-off of the Dallas Cowboys – Washington Commanders NFL football game in Landover, Maryland Sunday, January 7, 2024.

“We are honored to showcase the United States Air Force Air Mobility Command’s pride and joy with two planes from the largest C-130 fleet in the world,” said Col. Denny Davies, 19th Airlift Wing and installation commander. “There is no better place to salute the Stars and Stripes than our Nation’s capital, and this flyover represents our commitment to the defense of freedom.”

U.S. Air Force Maj. David Hoffman and U.S. Air Force Capt. John Wood from the 41st Airlift Squadron at Little Rock Air Force Base, Arkansas will pilot the two C-130Js.

The 19th Airlift Wing (Air Mobility Command) is the host wing at LRAFB and provides the Department of Defense mission-ready Airmen and supports the largest C-130 fleet in the world. As part of AMC's Global Reach capability, the wing's responsibilities range from supplying humanitarian airlift relief to victims of disasters, to airdropping supplies and troops into the heart of contingency operations in hostile areas as well as supporting base partners as the host unit.

“Flyovers like this serve as training for our flight crews, but more importantly, it’s our way of saying ‘thank you’ to the fans for their support as we serve our Nation,” Davies said.
