Arlington Cemetery,
1 x B-1 Flyover

I used to watch the movements from Gravelly park near DCA and I have seen F/A18's, F-15's, and B1B flyover the Cemetery. Pretty cool site. Might be a decent photo op for anyone interested.

I got a great B1b flyover in BOI last week. Two of them were doing low passes over the field. In the queue at the moment.

Depending on what time of day it is (sun location). You maybe able to contact the cemetary itself to find out a time.

I think they had the B1B do a flyby last year over the cemetary. My dad walked to the cemetary but the weather was crappy. I forgot what the ocassion was

yea! Not necessarily the greatest "show", but it was quite a surprise to see at that little airport.

I only wish they had maintained the formation they were in for the 'go round.
