“Well designed”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

I think the design is great and can be seen for miles around. From the Lincoln Memorial to the Pentagon. Speaking of the Pentagon if the Air Force Memorial was in place on 9/11 2001, built directly on the flight path of the fatal flight that struck the Pentagon that day; the memorial would have brought the plane down earlier and it would not have made it to the Pentagon.

“Impressive from a distance, simple up close”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

You can't miss this memorial from the Pentagon, as it's up on a hill and soars up several hundred feet. This missing man formation monument won't mean much to those that don't know the flying formation performed at veterans events and memorials until you go to the site and read about it. Up close, you can see the enormity of the sculptures but there isn't much else to look at.

“Fabulous Memorial!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The Air Force Memorial is a fabulous tribute to the men and women who have served our Nation as members of the US Air Force and its predecessor organizations. The Memorial's panoramic view of Washington DC from atop the highest point in Arlington National Cemetery is absolutely a must see when visiting the DC/Northern Virginia. From the three majestic spires rising to the heavens, to the Honor Guard protecting the Memorial, to the aerospace inscriptions adorning the marble walls of remembrance...this is a memorial that will stand the test of time...and is a most fitting tribute to our United States Air Force.

“Touching Memorial”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Beautifully erected. Knowing the history behind the missing man formation makes this memorial even more poignant. From the Memorial you can see the Pentagon as well as the Washington Monument.
