Messages of support for first responders appeared overhead today.
Members of the GEICO Skytypers Air Show Team wrote messages of appreciation and hope over Connecticut, Westchester, New York City, and Long Island. 
The fleet of World War II airplanes traveled through Connecticut and Westchester on their way to the Statue of Liberty before traveling up the Hudson River and circling over the boroughs out to Long Island.
“We can’t think of a better way to thank all New Yorkers for their commitment to health and safety, especially those on the front lines,” says Larry Arken, squadron commander and team flight lead of the GEICO Skytypers. 
The messages were visible 15 miles away from the hospitals on the flight path.
