U.S. Capitol flyover marks 70th anniversary of V-E Day

U.S. Capitol flyover marks 70th anniversary of V-E Day

More than 40 vintage aircraft of World War II will fill the skies over the nation’s capital Friday, May 8, in tribute to the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe (V-E) Day.

Fifteen flying formations will form up near Leesburg, Virginia, and follow the Potomac River southeast toward Washington. But unlike the usual “river run” of modern commercial flights into Reagan National Airport, the venerable war birds will bank over the Lincoln Memorial, overflying the National World War II Memorial, head east past the Washington Monument along Independence Avenue, turning south as they pass over the National Air and Space Museum near the Capitol.

The first formation is expected to fly just 1,000 feet over the Lincoln Memorial at about 12:10 p.m.

And The Observatory, The Graham’s Rooftop bar and lounge, will have the best view! Come join us!

Temporary Hotel Closure Due to COVID-19

As a result of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the hospitality industry is experiencing an impact to business that will cause The Graham Georgetown to temporarily suspend hotel operations as of March 27, 2020. This is a temporary measure that is reflective of the current business environment. This decision is not a result of illness or confirmed cases at the hotel.

We are in the process of supporting Team Members through the transition and notifying guests. Any guests with questions regarding upcoming reservations are encouraged to contact Hilton Reservations and Customer Care for assistance. We plan to fully restore operations at our hotel by September 15, 2020, and look forward to welcoming our guests and Team Members back as soon as possible. We can’t wait to resume our place in the Georgetown community!
