We didn't plan on seeing this before we came but I'm glad we did. It is striking and beautiful. It stands out as a very unique memorial in the dc area.

Loved everything about it! It is so impressive. Very well kept. Loved the place where you could take a picture of the memorial with F-16s flying over it. It is a very large park with lots of activities going on at certain times. Beautiful views all around the park. Stay at the Americana Hotel. They have a shuttle that will... More

Overlooking the Arlington Cemetery is this tribute. Striking design. We visited during an Honor Flight and were very impressed. It is impressive for the site of an Air Force tribute to have such a beautiful location and views overlooking Washington.

Striking design. Memorial located just outside Arlington Cemetery. We were lucky to be there during an Honor Flight from Texas and watched the ceremony. Beautiful location and views.

Offers one of the best views of DC and Potomac River. Simple memorial - recognizable by three soaring "contrails" that catch light beautifully at sunrise and sunset. When I have visitors, I take them to this spot for a quick orientation of DC - pointing to National Cathedral, Kennedy Center, the bridges spanning the Potomac and a plethora of other... More

i thought this was understated and inspiring. Didnt know it was there so came across it when moving from the Pentagon to Arlington, it does domminate the landscape due to the lack of tall buildings. A great discovery

Really only accessible by car, but they have parking there. You can do it in a 15 minute stop - but take time to read the inscriptions. Not uncommon to see a promotion, retirement or reenlistment ceremony there, especially in better weather.

It is a really cool little place to visit at night! A great view of the Pentagon and DC! The night time is a much more impressive visit than during the day!

Place to visit to pay respect to the man with wings. It's just by the road but there is more to just by the road, it's the feeling of being there and just looking straight at the Pentagon. Long live the the wing heroes.
