Our military’s flight demonstration teams, the Blue Angels of the Navy and Thunderbirds of the Air Force, flew over Arlington and the D.C. area on Saturday.
The flyover was intended to honor frontline workers during the coronavirus pandemic and to inspire national unity.
Arlingtonians came out to watch the unique spectacle — from a safe distance from each other, of course — and share in this collective moment together.
