Salute from the Shore honors armed forces July 4th

Posted: Updated:

Salute from the Shore is flying anyway for the fourth year. The air parade that follows the South Carolina coast annually on July 4 will begin at 1:00pm from the northernmost beaches in Myrtle Beach area, arrive in Charleston area around 1:45pm, before continuing south to Hilton Head Island.

But there are several changes this year.  Government budget cuts, commonly known as sequestration, ground the Shaw Air Force Base's fleet F-16s, so this year the salute will be flown in a collection of WWII-era craft.

Here's a schedule of estimated viewing times along the shore: 

1:00  Cherry Grove Pier
1:02  N. Myrtle Beach
1:05  Apache Pier
1:07  14th Ave. Pier
1:09  Springmaid Pier
1:12  Surfside Pier
1:16  Murrells Inlet Jetty
1:18  Litchfield Beach
1:19  Pawleys Island
1:22  Debordieu
1:40  Isle of Palms
1:42  Sullivans Island
1:47  Folly Beach
1:49  Kiawah
1:50  Seabrook Island
1:56  Edisto Beach
2:00  Hunting Island
2:06  Hilton Head
