On Friday, May 15, an aerial salute to those working on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic was presented by The New York Air National Guard’s 106th Rescue Wing, based out of Westhampton. An HC-130J search and rescue plane and two HH-60G search and rescue helicopters took off from the Francis S. Gabreski Air National Guard base. The first stop along the way was Stony Brook Southampton Hospital (pictured), followed by East Hampton Healthcare Center, Stony Brook Eastern Long Island Hospital, Peconic Bay Medical Center, St. Charles Hospital, Stony Brook University Hospital, Nassau University Medical Center, and several others.
