Greatest Generation Day Flyover

The Grand Rapids Greatest Generation Day Committee is excited to announce a special event honoring the 75th Anniversary of the end of World War II. On September 2, 1945, with the signing of the Instrument of Surrender aboard the U.S. Navy battleship the USS Missouri, World War II was officially over. On September 2, 2020, a B17, C47, B25 World War II Plane Flyover will take place in various locations around Grand Rapids to honor our county’s heroes.

At approximately 6:05 PM, the planes will fly over Metro Health and the Grand Rapids Veterans Administration Outpatient Clinic. We invite you to come to Metro Health and view the flyover. In addition, we will have portraits of WWII veterans on display outside of the main entrance. We hope to see you there as we support of veterans of the Greatest Generation.
