Hi Everyone,
I just got back from a visit with my brother in Brownsville Florida. While there I thought it would be fun to visit NAS Pensacola and take in the Museum.
I'm not real excited about wingy things, having worked on them for most of my life. Thought I would post a few pics and if there is any interest will continue to do so.

The set up looks very much like several of the displays at
Duxford here in the UK. You see the displays from both the ground and an upper walk way. Probably like that every where they have displays. !
Keep posting please.:smiling:

John,
You are correct...I think it has to do with the number of aircraft in a building that did not grow with the collection. The museum has a flight line with more parked out on the ramp, I did not have time to see. At any rate, here is the next installment. Rick H.

Thanks Mick and Steve,
This will be my last post for a few days as I do not have pics downloaded on my tablet. Will be posting more once I return from my Part Time job working on wingy things in Missoula, MT.
