&quotThe Memorial itself is 270 feet (82 m) higher and appears to be soaring its array of stainless steel arcs against the sky evokes the image of &quotcontrails of the Air Force Thunderbirds as they peel back in a precision ‘bomb burst’ maneuver.&quot Only three of the 4 contrails are depicted, as the absent fourth evokes the missing man formation traditionally utilised at Air Force funeral fly-overs.&quot
&quotThe spire structure consists of stainless steel plates with high-strength concrete filling the lower 2/3rds of every single spire. The upper third is hollow stainless steel.[six] At the transition amongst concrete and hollow steel portions, dampers are offered to dissipate wind sway power and eradicate the threat of aerodynamic instability. Every single damper consists of a lead ball weighing about a ton each and every, allowed to roll inside a steel box. The structural design of the memorial was completed by engineering.&quot
