Two planes flew over the Greater Olean area on Saturday to honor first responders, medical personnel and essential workers.
The flyover, Operation Thanks from Above, Southern Tier, was conducted by the National Warplane Museum.
The planes were a Douglas C-47, named “Whiskey 7,” and a P-51 Mustang named "Mad Max." The Douglas C-47 was the lead aircraft in the second wave of the D-Day invasion on over Sainte Mere Eglise, Normandy, on June 6, 1944.
Small groups gathered on the St. Bonaventure University campus and outside Olean General Hospital to view the plans as they flew over the area shortly before 11 a.m.
