(KWWL) -

Planes were flying overhead in Washington D.C. today.

More than 20 World War Two era airplanes took to the skies to honor disabled American veterans.

It's called the Potomac Flight.

The planes took off from Culpeper Regional Airport this morning and soared in formation down the Potomac River.

They flew over the Pentagon, Arlington National Cemetery and other military landmarks.

The aircrafts included T-6 "Texans", B-25 Mitchell Bomber, and a P-51 Mustang.

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