Salute From The Shore flyover returns July 4

2 mins read

On Sunday, July 4, 2021, the non-profit Salute From the Shore will take to the skies once again with their 12th Annual Salute From the Shore featuring military planes from both Shaw Air Force Base and Joint Base Charleston, as well as vintage, civilian-owned and flown aircrafts.

The planes will fly down the South Carolina coastline from Myrtle Beach to Bluffton, and will offer beachgoers a chance to gather together to salute those in the Armed Forces that are currently serving or have served our country. Everyone is invited to celebrate the 4th of July and honor the United States Military during this free military flyover.

Salute From the Shore is a non-profit, grassroots group of patriotic South Carolinians that was founded for the sole purpose of honoring the Armed Forces on Independence Day. On a day where family and friends gather together to celebrate, there are many currently serving the United States overseas, away from their family and their friends. The founders of Salute From the Shore wanted to recognize their sacrifices and honor them on a day when the United States celebrates its freedom.

This year’s Salute From the Shore will begin at the North Carolina/South Carolina border, 40 miles north of Myrtle Beach, at approximately 1 p.m. and will make its way down the coastline, ending in Bluffton. The flyover will begin with two F-16s from Shaw Air Force Base, a C-17 from Joint Base Charleston, and a variety of vintage aircrafts and warbirds. The F-16s and C-17 will lead the way with the older planes flying behind at a slower pace.
