It was just last month that we were in Dayton, Ohio and took in the Air Force Museum. Well, come to find out that here on the Gulf Coast there is the National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola, Florida. As long as we were headed over that way for a few reasons, we took in the Navy’s air museum. What are the differences in the planes? The Navy has a lot more planes that have pontoons on them and many that have folding wings to take up less room on aircraft carriers. There aren’t as many heavy lift planes either.
The Museum houses the plaques of the Naval Air Hall of Fame which included such famous inductees as John Glenn and former President George H. W. Bush. The Pensacola Naval Air Station is the home of the flying troupe, The Blue Angels. They will be performing a homecoming show next weekend and we might just journey back over there.
Pensacola Beach had yet more of this fantastic fine white sand and we have been loving this 80 to 85 degree weather which after two glorious weeks finally has given way to a windy cold front from the north.
