It’s no secret that I like aviation. I would have been a pilot if my eye-site had been better. But that doesn’t diminish my admiration for those that fly and those that maintain the aircraft.
Precision flying teams like the Blue Angels are incredible to watch. These A-4 Skyhawks are a previous generation of the Angels and now hang in the Blue Angel Atrium, a ceremonial section of the National Naval Aviation Museum at the Naval Air Station Pensacola. It’s one of the top aviation museums in the country and continues to grow every year. If you’re lucky, the Angels might even be in town practicing right out back.
