Fourth of July in Washington, D.C. is always a big spectacle. Now, President Trump wants to add his flare to the celebration including a flyover of the plane used as Air Force One.

According to The Daily Caller:

President Donald Trump’s Fourth of July celebration will include Air Force One flying over the National Mall, according to sources aware of the plans.

The celebratory events, dubbed “A Salute to America” by the president, are intended to be similar to France’s Bastille Day celebration that Trump witnessed in 2017, sources told The Washington Post.

...

He announced in February that 2019’s Fourth of July celebration would be “one of the biggest gatherings in the history of Washington, D.C.”

“It will be called ‘A Salute To America’ and will be held at the Lincoln Memorial,” the president tweeted. “Major fireworks display, entertainment and an address by your favorite President, me!”

  President Trump will not be aboard the plane when it flies over the National Mall making it technically not Air Force One at the time.
