Remembering D Day: Military Jet Fly Over, 21 Gun Salute, Laying of The Ceremonial Wreath (Video)

French, British and American Air Force jets participated. The United State aircraft conducted the "Missing Man" formation.

The `Missing Man' is usually flown by four to six aircraft in a V formation with the left leg longer than the right (viewed from below) and the flight leader at the point of the arrowhead. As the formation approaches the gravesite or other ceremony area, the wingman following to the leader's right (left from below) leaves the formation in a spectacular pull-up, suggesting the hero's soul going up to God.

Very nice tribute.
