Flash Mob: The U.S. Air Force Band at the Smithsonian

This week the U.S. Air Force Band made a surprise visit to the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., when they participated in a flash mob. For those that don’t know, a flash mob is a group of people that assemble in a public place, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, and artistic expression.

This particular flash mob did something relatively unique, beginning with a single cellist in the museum’s “Milestones of Flight” exhibit and then quickly growing to 120 participants. Airmen came from behind airplanes and space capsules to perform a four-minute holiday arrangement for lucky museum visitors. This is one holiday video you shouldn’t miss.

The flash mob was to promote the band’s upcoming holiday tour.
