This memorial is very well maintained and the structure is just amazing. One thing there's not much to see, so I recommend this memorial only if you have extra time to spare.

The Air Force Memorial is a very beautiful memorial that is extremely well maintained. We always enjoy going to this memorial, there are several different statues and individual memorials all right there together. We especially try to go on clear sunny days, as the view into DC is remarkable.

The Air Force Memorial is not only an important monument to commemorate Airmen, but is also an architectural interest piece with the towering contrails contrasted against the DC skyline. Well worth a stop if you are in the DC area to see Arlington Cemetery or the Pentagon tour/Pentagon 9/11 memorial

Families who are visiting Washington this summer, while viewing the Lincoln Memorial or other classic attractions in the heart of Washington, might spy a trio of silver streaks on the opposite side of the Potomac and wonder what it is. See for yourselves. This elegant memorial for the U.S. Air Force, nestled near Arlington Cemetery, has as its centerpiece three... More

When I look at this memorial, I can see the jets soaring high in the sky. I know it's a cliche, but that is the easiest way to describe this memorial. and I believe that was the plan. It is absolutely beautiful at night.

Walking distance from Sheraton Pentagon City beautiful sculpture reaching towards the sky just like a plane trail in the upper atmosphere not yet disturbed by the upper wind currants. They have live concerts there on weekends.

You can't miss this landmark if you are near the Pentagon. It's a huge, beautiful sculpture (giving me a sense of the contrails from a Thunderbird bomb-burst maneuver) overlooking Arlington Cemetery and the Potomac. At the site, they often have performances and we were here for a patriotic show by the AF Band and their singers. You walk up from... More
