The Cotuit-Santuit Civic Association has arranged for the U.S. Air Force’s 143rd Airlift Wing C-130J Super Hercules to conduct a flyover during Cotuit’s Fourth of July Parade at 11:05 am. The plane will be flying at an elevation of 1,000 feet as it flies over Cotuit’s Main Street.

The 143rd Airlift Wing is based at Quonset Point Air National Guard Base in Rhode Island. We are so thankful to have them and the 102nd Military Intelligence Wing color guard from Joint Base Cape Cod joining our parade this year.
