Arsenal of Democracy World War II VE Day

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 25 May 2015 in Transportation.

I thought that this was sort of appropriate for Memorial Day. The Flyover took place on May 8th . Fifty six WWII era planes flew over the WWII Memorial in Washington, DC to honor the heroes who fought in the War and those on the home front who produced the tanks, ships, and aircraft that enabled the United States and its Allies to achieve victory. It was a spectacular sight!

Spectacular indeed! Beautiful image, Elaine! Thinking of all my friends whom I lost in the Vietnam War as well as an old friend who flew as a Bombardier over Germany in WWII - he was a pillar in my life - so thank you!
