Photographer Chris Lundberg captured the essence of the day with this image of the Saturday, June 23, Fly-Over at the Minnesota Capitol in St. Paul in honor of the Vietnam Veteran's Moving Wall, a three quarter replica of the wall in Washington D.C. There are 58,318 names listed on the wall by date of when each was killed.

In the sky, at the top of the photo are three T-6 aircraft, followed by three T-34s in the missing man formation, and a T-28.

In the foreground is a "Huey" UH-1A helicopter flown in by Vietnam Veteran Jim Ottman who flew the same type of aircraft during the war.

The moving wall display at the capitol was open to the public from June 21 through June 24.
