Video: National Guard fly over Boston Marathon

One year after a terrorist bombing claimed the lives of three people and injured more than 200, runners were off and spectators cheering for the 118th Boston Marathon on April 21. Before the starting gun sounded, four HH-60M Air Ambulance Black Hawk Helicopters with the Massachusetts Army National Guard flew over the Boston Marathon route. Approximately 750 soldiers and airmen from the Massachusetts National Guard were on duty along the 26.2-mile route from Hopkinton to Boston’s Copley Square, according to NBC.
