Independence Day flyover canceled due to pandemic

The air force’s Independence Day flyover, a staple of the annual celebrations, has been scrapped to prevent gatherings on the holiday, which begins next Tuesday night.

But four planes will fly over the country’s hospitals to salute medical staff fighting the virus, Army Radio says.
