All requests for Air Force aviation support--flyovers, aerial reviews, aerial demonstrations, Thunderbirds--should be submitted on the Air Force aerial events website. The site includes guidance on how to submit a request, how to contact an Air Force unit, and appropriate forms. Events are normally supported on a voluntary basis and must not impact mission capabilities.
The 121st Air Refueling Wing has KC-135R Stratotankers that can be requested through this site.
The Department of Defense authorizes the Air Force to participate in flyovers for those recognition events held in direct support of the five patriotic holidays (Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, POW/MIA Day and Veterans Day) and for aviation-related events, such as air shows and airport dedications. All non-aviation related events are processed as Exceptions-to-Policy and they cannot show preferential treatment to any single organization to include specific charities, or must be incidental to the non-aviation related event. Non-aviation requests may include sporting and other community-wide events but there must be a military connection on the ground during the time of the flyover and it must aide the Air Force in meeting our messaging and recruiting needs.
