Pensacola

While at Pensacola I had a chance to visit the Naval Aviation Museum. This is one of the top two or three aviation museums in the world.

The aircraft are restored beautifully, guides are knowledgeable, the IMAX theatre is huge, and I see planes here I have never seen before. Truly I’m a kid in a candystore today.

This exact FJ4 had been flown by a friend of the family when he was stationed in Hawaii

No doubt I will return to take in this museum again some day.

    Very cool, Peter. Marion Carl (for whom Carl Field aboard MCB Hawaii is named) flew Banshees. Hope you are enjoying the trip!
