One of the most amazing displays during the July 4th celebration in Washington, DC was the flyover by the Blue Angels.
B-2, Blue Angels Flyovers Wow 4th of July Crowds at Lincoln Memorial
President Donald Trump had promised a “great show” for his Fourth of July “Salute To America” from the Lincoln Memorial, and few could doubt that it was, bolstered by a thrilling display of air might that soared over the National Mall during his speech.
With the flair and timing he honed as a reality TV star, Trump presided over carefully choreographed and impeccably sequenced flyovers by a B-2 stealth bomber, fighters, tiltrotor aircraft and attack and rescue helicopters, all arranged to fly by in concert with his remarks honoring each service branch.
There was even an element of suspense that the president played to effect, as threatening skies and intermittent rain earlier forced the evacuation of a section at the opposite end of the Mall near the Capitol.
The show began with a flyby from one of the Boeing VC-25s that becomes Air Force One when the president is aboard, prompting chants from the crowd of “USA! USA!”
