TULSA, Oklahoma -

Retired military fighter pilots flew over several Green Country hospitals to honor healthcare workers and first responders Tuesday night.

Ascension St. John hosted the “Light Up the Sky” event to show frontline workers they aren't alone.

Hospitals are also putting on a light display in support of the workers.

The planes flew over Ascension St. John Owasso, then continued south over Hillcrest Medical Center, followed by Ascension St. John Tulsa at 21st and Utica, Saint Francis Health System at 61st and Yale and and ended at Ascension St. John in Broken Arrow.

People then joined together for an outdoor prayer service for healthcare workers and first responders.

They also asked community members and business owners to light up their homes and businesses in blue to honor frontline workers.
