A special formation took the sky on Sept. 17 to celebrate the U.S. Air Force’s 68th birthday.

Among the aircraft involved in the flypast over Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, during the United States Air Force Tattoo held to commemorate the U.S. Air Force anniversary, there was also a warbirds flight, which consisted of a P-51 Mustang, two B-25 Mitchells and two P-40 Warhawks.

The ceremony saw also the participation of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds demo team and of an F-22 Raptor which was part of the Heritage Flight along with a P-51.

However the warbirds formation was the real highlight of the celebrations as you can see by looking at the following awesome pictures: indeed these images are really unique since they have been taken from the cockpit of these legendary aircraft right before the sunset, a mixture that has yielded spectacular results.
