Wonderful view of the city, but tough to stay there long if the weather is hot and humid. It's an easy drive to this memorial, which is situated right next to the Pentagon, Fort Myer and the 9-11 Memorial at the Pentagon. But on a hot, muggy day it would be a tough walk for those not prepared for that... More

This memorial is absolutley beautiful, highly recommend visiting it both in the daytime and at night as it is even more amazing when the spires are lit up. There is also beautiful views as it sits on top of the hill overlooking the Pentagon.

The USAF Memorial symbolizes aircraft in flight, but look like the bent tines of a fork. Other exhibits in the area compliment this tribute.

This is one of my favorite monuments in the area, and it's one of the newer ones too. Situated on the hill overlooking the Pentagon, it's located exactly where the plane flew over to hit the Pentagon on 9/11. The view is breathtaking from here. The steel monument has 3 curved lines that symbolize 3 of a normal 4 formation... More

I stayed at the Sheraton overlooking Arlington National Cemetery, the Pentagon, as well as the Air Force Memorial. What a spectacular view we had at sunset over the Air Force Memorial. With the sun setting, it looked as if the aircraft afterburners were on as they came up off the ground, and the Pentagon in the background made it a... More

You can dial a phone number to hear all sorts of info, or read the panels - there are many but some are hard to read. Lots of meaning here if you do succeed in reading the panels or get the info via telephone. Great panorama of the city, especially scenic at night.

not just the large sculpture, but also a number of other smaller memorials such as glass etched monument, and statues. Gift shop closely, and a great view over washington too.

We visited this memorial on an evening tour. A lovely memorial to those who served in the Air Force. Absolutely lovely views of downtown Washington DC!

this is a beautiful memorial site to visit- the spires are visible all around DC but more impressive up close and offers a terrific view of Washington (better before tree foliage)
