Victory Flight Over Battleship IOWA

September 2, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

On Wednesday, September 2nd, the Commemorative Air Force’s (CAF) Inland Empire Wing, will conduct a flight over several important historic landmarks which played a major role in World War II. This event will commemorate 75 years since Imperial Japan signed the surrender document aboard the USS Missouri, officially ending World War II.

The Victory Flight hopes to bring honor to the veterans of World War II, including personnel who were held as prisoners of war or listed as missing in action, for their service and sacrifice, and to thank and honor the families of these veterans and pay tribute to the contribution made on the home front by the people of Southern California during World War II. The flight will go over many of these important landmarks such as the aircraft manufacturing facilities in Santa Monica, the Santa Ana Naval Air Station, and Marine Air Corps station in El Toro.

The Pacific Battleship Center – Battleship IOWA is another landmark the flight will flyover!
