I will be flying cross country the night of 3rd, and the biggest perk would be to be able to see some of the early celebratory fireworks going on everywhere, literally.
I remember the first year I started flying, and was in the air on July 4th.
The pilots allowed me to stay in the cockpit for a few minutes while we passed a populated area and was able to see the many many miniature firework displays going on 30,000ft below us.
I just thought that was one of the neatest things I was able to witness.
Happy birthday, America, thank you for giving me the opportunity to have some of the best experiences I can only imagine if I lived anywhere else.
Stay safe everybody!
