    The design of the U.S. Air Force Memorial symbolizes flight and the flying spirit with three stainless steel spires that soar 270 feet high (402 feet above sea level) and represent contrails of the Air Force Thunderbirds as they disperse in a "bomb burst" maneuver. The U.S. Air Force "star" is embedded in granite beneath the spires. The memorial also has a paved Runway to Glory at the entrance, an 8-foot-tall bronze Honor Guard statue, two granite inscription walls, and a Glass Contemplation Wall for visitors to pay tribute to fallen Air Force service members.
