Air Force Memorial Washington DC

I really enjoyed visiting the US Air Force Memorial in Washington DC with my group. Located in Arlington, this memorial honours the men and women of the United States Air Force.


The three stainless steel spires reach a height of 402 feet above sea level.


From most places in Washington DC you can see this memorial rising up on the horizon.


The three spires are designed to look like the contrails of the missing man formation. The memorial also represents the three parts of the airforce motto - integrity, service and excellence.


The statues show Honor Guard standing to attention. The statues show the diversity of the airforce in both gender and race.


The Glass Contemplation Wall represents all the air men that are no longer with us.


The Honor Wall Memorial remembers all the Medal Honor recipients.


A truly magnificent and unique memorial!
