Iron Mountain, Michigan: Military planes will fly over parade route

For the second year in a row, there’s a special addition to the 4th of July parade in Iron Mountain. Three antique military planes will do a flyover shortly before the parade begins.

The lead plane is a Pilatus P-3, a 1950s plane from Switzerland. The others are a Yak-52, a Soviet aircraft used to train pilots in the 1980s, and a T-6 Texan, an American plane that Army Air Corps and Navy pilots trained on in World War II. The T-6 is the plane pictured here.

The flyover should take place at about 9:15 a.m. Central time.
