Now, northern parts of the state have a chance to view a flyover. The C-130 flyover will begin in Marietta, before going to Kennesaw, Canton, Jasper, Dalton, Rome, Cartersville and Hiram.

The flyover comes as several other air bases around the country have done similar gestures as a show of respect toward health care staff and other essential workers.

North Georgia residents will be able to see the flyover from the safety of their homes and should maintain all social distancing guidelines.
