NBC -- It was a breathtaking sight over Washington, D.C.

More than 20 World War II era air planes took to the skies to honor Disabled American Veterans.

It's called the "Potomac Flight."

The planes took off from Culpeper Regional Airport and soared in formation down the Potomac River, before flying over the Pentagon, Arlington National Cemetery and other military landmarks.

The vintage aircraft included T-6 "Texans," a B-25 Mitchell bomber, and a P-51 Mustang.

Organizers say the flights pay tribute, "to the services and sacrifices veterans have made to secure our nation's freedom."
