As of June 22, the 2010 Salute from the Shore has received a commitment from Charleston Air Force Base to route an existing flight over the coast of South Carolina! At 2:00 PM on the Fourth of July, a massive C-17 transport plane will begin its low-altitude run over the entire South Carolina coast, beginning in North Myrtle Beach. This is the culmination of a lot of work by a lot of patriotic Americans, including contributions of time and energy from many former and current members of our military.
We hope you are as excited as we are about celebrating the Fourth of July with a memorable and unique tribute to our armed forces around the world.
A special thanks to the Town of Pawleys Island for providing the primary venue for the event. We hope you can watch the Annual Pawley’s Island Parade and then join us on the beaches wearing and waving your red, white and blue at 2:00 PM on the Fourth! However, the plane will be over the entire coast that afternoon, so come out and support the troops by taking photos and videos that we can post here for the world to see.
