Yesterday AlertDC reported: ” US Air Force reports a flyover in the NCR consisting of two (2) military aircrafts at National Park on Thursday, April 7th, 2022 at 3:59PM.”

The Nats confirmed “Flyover by the 113th Wing, 121st Fighter Squadron from the D.C. Air National Guard, in F-16 Jets”

Since the game was pushed back to 7:05pm, presumably this will now occur at 6:59. Anyway if you see/hear some fighter jets later, this is why.

From the Nationals:

“Spring in Washington D.C. means two things: baseball and cherry blossoms.

The Washington Nationals are proud to combine these two iconic features, today revealing the club’s cherry blossom-themed City Connect uniforms. The Nationals are the first of seven clubs participating in this year’s Nike MLB City Connect Series.

Designed in partnership with Nike, the uniform’s creative elements weave a powerful connection between the team and the region it represents. The architectural typeface represents the city’s strength, while the tonal floral toile is a symbol of its beauty. The pink and ivory color palette, which evokes the feeling of spring in D.C., is set against a dark anthracite background. Cherry blossom petals and branches, as well as the city flag, are prominently displayed, showcasing the pride the Nationals have for their hometown. Read More
