The eighth annual July Fourth "Salute from the Shore" flight of military aircraft will take place Tuesday, traveling the length of the South Carolina coast from north to south.
The parade of current and vintage military planes begins at 1 p.m. in Cherry Grove, near the North Carolina border, and finishes near Hilton Head Island around 1:30 p.m.
Among the aircraft are F-16 jets from Shaw Air Force Base and a C-17 from Joint Base Charleston.
The lead flight will be over the Isle of Palms by 1:15 p.m.; Charleston Harbor by 1:16 p.m.; and Folly Beach by 1:20 p.m.
If conditions permit, the vintage aircraft will follow, but they are much slower and more affected by headwinds.
"This year's theme is about tradition, and it's become a South Carolina tradition," said group board President Andy Folsom. "People expect to see it."
