A noontime Friday flyover of the Eunice and Opelousas hospitals saluted health care workers.
Ryan Elliot, lead pilot of a T-6 Texan, said the flyover was to show support for first responders who have been dealing with coronavirus outbreak.
“We are just trying to show some support,” he said of “St. Landry Salutes.”
Kevin Frank, Acadian Medical Center CEO, said, “It is very nice for them to do it,” after the planes made two passes over the hospital at about 12:30 p.m.
