Photo Editor Bill Clark and Staff Photographer Tom Williams attended the Arsenal of Democracy flyover Friday and captured some stunning moments.
Many veterans from WWII were on the Mall to watch the commemorative event. According to the organizing group, the flyover included dozens of World War II aircraft flying in 15 historical warbird formations representing the major battles, from Pearl Harbor through the final air assault on Japan.
Williams, looking to get IDs for captioning asked one feisty veteran his age. “None of your business,” the vet replied.
