Pensacola Naval Air Museum

Larry, Lu, Galen and I visited the impressive Naval Air Museum.  We needed this photo for a virtual geocache located in front of the museum.

There is an outstanding variety of actual planes from WWI and WWII inside the museum.  Admission is free.  It is easy to spend hours there and if you get hungry, food at the Cubi Cafe is good.  There is an iMax theater in the building and simulators, including a 4D simulator, available but they aren't free.

The building is so nicely set up and spotlessly clean.

This plane is the USS TEXAS.  Note where the guns are in relation to the propeller.  This could have been quite dangerous but the guns and propeller are synchronized.

Galen thought about getting in the cockpit, too, but....
....there was no way he could fit his long legs into this.
