KENT COUNTY, Mich. (May 21, 2014) — A low-flying aircraft prompted several concerned viewers to contact FOX 17 News Wednesday afternoon.
According to officials at Gerald R. Ford International Airport, a B52 flew low near the airport at about 2:45 p.m., but it was nothing to worry about.
“Our air traffic control has requested the pilot fly low near the airport to give those in the area a nice view,” the airport’s Facebook page says.
The flyover was a tribute to Lt. Col. David Raab, a 52-year-old Air Force pilot who recently passed away from cancer.
FOX 17 was contacted by viewers in the Wyoming and Jenison areas about the low flying aircraft.
