Historic Flight Over Washington, D.C.: Culpeper Air Fest

12:30 PM - 12:35 PM Eastern Standard Time

Airspace over the Pentagon and Arlington National Cemetery



On October 7, World War II era aircraft, including T-6 “Texans”, will launch from Culpeper Regional Airport and soar in formation down the Potomac River.

The Potomac Flight over the Pentagon and Arlington National Cemetery is in honor of DAV (Disabled American Veterans) and pays tribute to the services and sacrifices veterans have made to secure our nation’s freedom. This ceremonial formation flight will be visible from Alexandria, Arlington and Rosslyn, VA. Culpeper Air Fest will serve as a home base for the ground-breaking flight. 

The North American T-6 “Texan” is a two-seat aircraft used as the advanced trainer for World War II pilots. Designed by North American Aviation, Inc., and first flown in 1938, the “Texan” quickly became the most popular trainer aircraft for the U.S. Military in the 1940s and 1950s. Over 15,000 “Texans” were built between 1938 and 1947, and approximately 400 are still flying today.
