Salute from the Shores 13th Annual Event
On Monday, July 4, 2022, the non-profit Salute From the Shore will take to the skies once again with their 13th annual Salute From the Shore featuring F-16s from McEntire Joint National Guard Base and C-17s from Joint Base Charleston. The planes will fly down the South Carolina coastline from Myrtle Beach to Bluffton, and will offer beachgoers a chance to gather together to salute those in the Armed Forces that are currently serving or have served our country. Everyone is invited to celebrate the 4th of July and honor the United States Military during this free military flyover.
Salute From the Shore is a non-profit, grassroots group of patriotic South Carolinians that was founded for the sole purpose of honoring the Armed Forces on Independence Day. On a day where family and friends gather together to celebrate, there are many currently serving the United States overseas, away from their family and their friends. The founders of Salute From the Shore wanted to recognize their sacrifices and honor them on a day when the United States celebrates its freedom.
This year's Salute From the Shore will begin at the North Carolina/South Carolina border, 40 miles north of Myrtle Beach, at approximately 1pm and will make its way down the coastline, ending in Bluffton. Residents and visitors alike are encouraged to book their hotels and vacation rentals along the flight path and to begin finding their most patriotic red, white, and blue attire for the occasion.
