COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS)- South Carolina is celebrating Independence Day this year with a patriotic flyover performed by volunteer pilots with the Salute From the Shore organization.

F-16 Fighters will be joined by a collection of vintage war planes in a salute to our country’s heroes, flying the coast of South Carolina from Myrtle Beach to Hilton Head.

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, where it’ll end in Bluffton.

The flyover will begin with two F-16s from Shaw Air Force Base and a C-17 from Charleston Air Force Base. Following the military planes will be a civilian-owned and flown vintage aircraft, a P51.

This plane flies slower than the military planes and will extend the Salute through the afternoon as it makes it’s way down the South Carolina coastline.
