Summary

Historic aircraft sweep over the National Mall in Washington, D.C. during the Arsenal of Democracy Flyover to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the European theater victory in World War II, May 8, 2015. More than 50 aircraft from all periods of World War II, coordinated by the Commemorative Air Force, flew at about 1,000 feet over the nation’s capital, including a B-17 Flying Fortress and a P-51 Mustang. The flyover coincides with a commemorative veterans celebration at the WWII Memorial on the National Mall. This was the first time that civilian aircraft were allowed to overfly the National Mall since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. (U.S. Army photo by Staff Sgt. Bernardo Fuller/Released)
