The Falcon RV Squadron, which is based in Peachtree City, said on social media they drew two hearts over local hospitals to show support for hospital workers and people suffering from the coronavirus.


The squad flew over Grady and Emory hospitals at 8 p.m. and over Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and St. Joseph’s and Northside hospitals at 8:10 p.m.

The heart was drawn in conjunction with the nightly cheer sessions in Midtown for front-line workers.
