Fly-by Honors ...

Sharp Coronado Hospital employees await the arrival of the fly-by in their honor.

Twenty-five or more aircraft performed flybys over Sharp HealthCare hospitals and other system hospitals to show their gratitude to health care workers on Friday, April 24. They began with Sharp Memorial Hospital, went south to Sharp Coronado Hospital, then off to Sharp Chula Vista Hospital and finishing with Sharp Grossmont Hospital.

In Coronado, Sharp healthcare workers, caregivers and medical staff gathered on the grass at Tidelands Park to see the dozens of aircraft flying in formation, some with thank you banners, others making smoke patterns and performing stunts.

The event organizer, pilot and veteran Phil Kendro is a husband of a nurse who works at Sharp MemorialHospital.
