|Gate to the Naval Air Station|
|Entering the Museum|
|Museum Foyer. It is massive.|
|These guys are here to greet you at the museum entry. (Not the fellow in the yellow shirt)|
|Our tour guide was Oz Nunn. A retired Kentucky businessman. He served in the Air Force. |
It's anybody's guess why he's so interested in the Navy.
|An original German Fokker|
|This huge thing was one of just four made in the mid-1940's. It is the NC-4 Flying Boat and it is original. It is the first plane to fly across the Atlantic. It's the largest wing span I've ever seen -- 180 feet across, I think.|
|The USS Cabot Flight deck. The boards Wayne is standing on are the actual planks taken from the USS Lexington.|
|Blue Angel jets.|
|It's impossible to describe the size of this facility. There are four full-sized jets hanging in this atrium. |
That's Wayne standing just in front of the huge American flag.
|I really liked this display. It's the newest one in the museum and was added because so many people were confused at the ever evolving Navy emblems. There's a reason behind each variation, we were told.|
|Enough said right here.|
|Wayne's favorite is always the amphibious planes.|
|We were fortunate to get to see these Blue Angel planes fly over while we were there.|
