About three weeks after four fighter jets soared across Massachusetts in support of hospital workers, the F-15 Eagle aircraft will again fly over the state Monday in honor of Memorial Day.

The 104th Fighter Wing of the Massachusetts National Guard announced the scheduled flyover will begin on Cape Cod at 11:30 a.m. and end in Connecticut.

“Memorial Day is a day to remind us of the sacrifices Americans are willing to make to protect others,” Col. Tom Bladen, 104th Fighter Wing Vice Commander, said in a statement. “These Memorial Day flyovers are a tribute in honor of those who have died serving our great nation and protecting our American way of life.”
