U.S. Air Force Memorial by Night

The U.S. Air Force Memorial sits on high ground in Arlington, Virginia, across the Potomac from Washington, D.C.
The soaring forms of the curved columns evoke the contrails of diverging paths of an aerial maneuver by the Air Force's precision flying team the Thunderbirds.Only three of the four contrails are depicted, at 120 degrees from each other, as the absent fourth suggests the missing man formation traditionally used at Air Force funeral fly-overs.

The Washington Monument can be seen across the river between the left and center columns.
