Pensacola, FL – We visited the National Naval Aviation Museum again yesterday, finishing up our visit by touring the upper deck of the main building and Hangar Bay One. This museum is very much worth the visit. Not only do they have a lot of well restored US Navy, US Marine Corps, and US Coast Guard historic aircraft, the staff and volunteers are very friendly and helpful. The Tuesday and Wednesday Blue Angel practices during air show season are a bonus and if you have kids, the Wednesday practice is followed by an autograph session. Don’t bother leaving the museum to eat either, the Cubi Bar Cafe not only serves great food, it is full of memorabilia and squadron plaques from the original Cubi Point Officers Club in the Philippines.
