CNN: World War II planes fly over Washington monuments

Washington (CNN)More than two dozen World War II-era fighters and bomber planes whooshed over Washington, D.C.'s most famous monuments on Friday to mark the 70th anniversary of the Allied victory in Europe.

Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and hundreds of World War II veterans attended the flyover, which was open to the public and started around noon, according to the organizers of the Arsenal of Democracy Flyover.

The event forced Washington's Reagan National Airport to shut down for one hour, from noon to 1 p.m.
