To honor the heroes who fought in World War II and those on the home front who produced the tanks, ships, and aircraft that enabled the United States and its Allies to achieve victory, one of the most diverse arrays of World War II aircraft ever assembled will fly above the skies of Washington, D.C. on Friday, September 25th, 2020 – the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE) Day – as part of the Arsenal of Democracy World War II Victory Capitol Flyover.

The flyover will include dozens of World War II aircraft flying in 24 historically sequenced warbird formations overhead. The formations will represent the War’s major battles, from Battle of Britain through the final air assault on Japan, and concluding with a missing man formation. Never before has such a collection of WWII aircraft been assembled at one location, to honor the large assemblage of veterans gathered at the National WWII Memorial for a ceremony.
