Naval Aviation Museum, Pensacola, FL 2/17/2014
I have heard a lot of positive comments about this Museum.

 First aircraft to fly 3000 mile trip from New York to Portugal.

 Our tour guide was phenomenal.  So interesting and informed.

T o know if the wheels come down the pilot had to look through an opening in the wheel well.

 An extremely rare plane.

 Naval aviation wouldn't be complete without the Blue Angels.
 The pipe above the nose is for fuel filling inflight.

 Plane found in the bottom of Lake Michigan.

Just as we were leaving Phil got an email from a fellow Roadtrekker that a great place to stay is Fort Pickens on Santa Rosa Island.  We asked the information desk and they gave us directions and suggested 2 places to eat.  But didn't stop because I had supper cooking in the crock pot.  It's a good thing we didn't stop.  We arrived at the gate for the campground just at sunset and were able to get in.  It was dark by the time we drove the additional miles to the campground.  We saw some Roadtreks.  Will check them out in the morning.
