As the surrender ceremonies concluded, 450 carrier planes from the Third Fleet passed in massed formation over USS Missouri. A few minutes later, Army Air Forces B-29 bombers flew by. This noisily impressive demonstration underscored the power that had brought Japan and the Allies to this time and place.
Aerial view of planes flying over Tokyo Bay, Japan, September 2 1945. And a few pics from a ships eye view.

I'd never seen the 330th BG plane-in-group markings on the top of the wings before (4th photo). Always something to discover.

That last photo reminds me of the patriotic animations touting "Air Power" that would be shown at movie theaters in the early 1940s.
