The Air Force Memorial is located in Arlington Virginia adjacent to Arlington National Cemetery and within view of the Pentagon.  The memorial was completed in 2006 and honors the 54,000 airman who have died in combat and all those who have served in the Air Force.  The memorial reaches a height of 270 feet and is patterned from the signature Thunderbirds maneuver of the bomb burst.

This pano was taken on my first visit to the memorial where I was scouting the location for a night shoot.  Normally I do most of my shooting at night.  However, once I stitched the shot I noticed that a red tailed hawk was kind enough to do a "fly by" for the shot.  So if you look carefully at the zenith of the bomb burst you see the hawk.

This is an overview of USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
