Arsenal of Democracy Set for WWII Aerial Tribute

The Arsenal of Democracy (AOD) is set to return to Washington, D.C., Friday with upwards of 70 vintage aircraft providing an aerial tribute over the National Mall and Potomac in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II.  Rescheduled from May when it was set to coincide with the 75th anniversary of Victory Europe Day, the event will involve World War II-era aircraft flying in historical sequence formations representing significant battles from the global conflicts and end with the missing man formation.

Staged five years after the first AOD flyover was held in recognition of the 70th anniversary of VE-Day, the commemorative tribute is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. EDT and will be live-streamed on the Arsenal of Democracy Flyover website http://ww2flyover.org/. Programming will begin at 10 a.m
