MISSOULA — Every night at 8:00 pm residents have been going outside to howl as a sign of appreciation for heath care workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. On April 14 Neptune Aviation joined in on the howling for health care workers with a special flyover.
“Neptune Aviation is extremely grateful to call Missoula “home” and witnessing the response of Missoula’s medical community to the COVID pandemic has been inspiring,” said Jennifer Draughon, Neptune Aviation Services’ President. “Neptune decided to show our support of the medical community by arranging a fly-over of Community Medical Center and St. Patrick’s Hospital at 8pm tonight as part of Missoula Howls.”
Neptune's Tanker 10 aircraft took off around 6:15pm to conduct a training for the upcoming fire season and then flew over both hospitals around 8:00pm. The aircraft was piloted by Captain Dale Dahl and First Officer Jerome Peeren.
