People all over San Antonio had their eyes to the sky Wednesday afternoon as the Air Force Thunderbirds did a flyover to salute people on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic.

One of those people was Anne Krause. She's a former executive officer with the Thunderbirds, and was the only female officer on the team in the 1997 and 1998 show seasons. She's now the Executive Director of Hemisfair Conservancy. Krause shared her perspective on the event with TPR’s Steve Short.

Steve joined the Texas Public Radio news team in 2009, and serves as TPR's Assistant News Director and afternoon anchor. You can hear him Monday-Friday from 3-7pm on KSTX 89.1 FM. Steve is a veteran of radio news in South Texas, having worked for commercial stations in the San Antonio area since the late 1980s.
