The Navy's Blue Angel flight squadron performed a surprise flyover for the 2020 graduates of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis on Wednesday, as cadets looked on from below and cheered.

Graduates were seated six feet apart from each other during the ceremony in accordance with social distancing measures, due to the novel coronavirus.

The restrictions did not dampen spirits, however, as the midshipmen threw their covers into the air at the exact same moment the planes passed overhead.

NAVY BLUE ANGELS, AIR FORCE THUNDERBIRDS TEAMING UP FOR FLYOVER TO SALUTE CORONAVIRUS FRONTLINE WORKERS

This isn't the first sky-high salute the Blue Angels have handed out recently. The squadron teamed up with Air Force pilots last month to salute first responders and essential workers, who were continuing to perform their duties despite the dangers of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Air Force Thunderbirds and the Navy's Blue Angels carried out formation flights over New York City, Newark, N.J.; Trenton, N.J., and Philadelphia.

The Blue Angels and Thunderbirds also flew over Washington, D.C. earlier this month, to honor healthcare workers near Sibley Memorial Hospital, Fox 5 reported. They then flew over Atlanta after covering the D.C. area
