WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Coast Guard is celebrating its aviation centennial by flying an assortment of aircraft over the nation's capital.

A Coast Guard statement says the flyover is set for 1 p.m. Friday. It includes nine aircraft from the current fleet, including some that are painted to resemble historical aircraft.

The route includes airspace over Nationals Park, the Pentagon and Arlington National Cemetery.
