Arsenal of Democracy Flyover

Vintage planes from World War II flew over the District to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Allied triumph in that war. For this history buff, the Arsenal of Democracy flyover was a thrilling opportunity to see the past come to life. I did find myself wishing, though, that Zeroes and Messerschmitts had been added to the mix for mock dogfights!
