From Poor QT’s Almanack

gw-bridge
The George Washington Bridge opened 85 years ago this week.

It opened after dedication ceremonies that called for three Army Air Corps pilots to fly in formation overhead.
But the pilots decided on their own that it might be more impressive if they flew under the bridge in formation.
Which they did.
QT’s father, Lt. Zay Smith, flew right wing.
The pilots were scolded afterward.
