For the first time ever, I kinda wish I could be in Mordor on the Potomac.
WASHINGTON – Bad weather has postponed the flyover of dozens of vintage planes over the skies of the D.C. area Friday to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II.
The flyover has been rescheduled for Saturday. More details are expected.
The flyover will incorporate and estimated 60 American, British, and Allied jets in honor of veterans, and to inspire young people.
Some of the historic aircraft expected to participate include the P-40 Warhawk, P-39 Airacobra, P-51 Mustang, P-47 Thunderbolt, F4U Corsair, B-25 Mitchell, B-17 Flying Fortress, B-29 Superfortress, and others.
Leftist “protesters” are also expected to gather on the Mall for a mass die-in, along with some light burning and looting, in protest of the murderous warmongering Amerikkkan fascist colonialist imperialism symbolized by the racist flyover.
Very neat. But I hope the “jets” referred to are more modern aircraft participating in the event. I know most journalists are damn ignorant about military stuff, but even they should have a clue that most WW2 air craft were not jets.
Heh, I missed that. We’re so used to seeing aircraft called “jets” that it doesn’t stand out. None of the American WW2 aircraft were jet powered and I’m quite certain none of the allies had one.
