Thousands of American flags of all sizes fluttered in the breeze at the second annual Antelope Valley Veterans Day Parade in the Southern California Community of Quartz Hill Nov. 6.

Preceded by a low-level flyover by two F-16 jets from nearby Edwards Air Force Base, more than 120 entries headed down the parade route, including a float from NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center. Several NASA Dryden employees walked alongside the float that featured the Highly Maneuverable Aircraft Technology, or HiMAT, subscale unmanned technology demonstration aircraft that was test flown at Dryden from 1979 through 1983.

The Veterans Day parade honored several members of the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association who rode aboard one of the floats, and featured three members of the World War Two-era Women's Airforce Service Pilots as grand marshals.
