A flyover by a vintage Douglas DC-3 aircraft will highlight the 74th Annual Memorial Day Observance at Woodlawn Cemetery in Santa Monica Monday, May 28.

The flyover is scheduled to occur at 11:30 a.m., when the plane will soar over Woodlawn Cemetery at 1,000 feet. The DC-3 was built by the Douglas Aircraft Company and made its maiden flight on Dec. 17, 1935 at Santa Monica Airport.

In addition to honoring American men and women in uniform who have made the ultimate sacrifice, the service will be centered on Santa Monica’s rich heritage.

The event will include City Councilman Bob Holbrook sharing stories of Santa Monica’s past, patriotic songs performed by police officer Shaun Dove, and taps performed by Santa Monica High School student Eli Brown. Entertainment will be provided by the Santa Monica Oceanaires
