Pensacola, Florida is home to the world famous Blue Angels, the Naval Aviation Museum, and a haunted lighthouse. On several occasions, my family and I had the unique experience of seeing the Blue Angels in action and visiting the aviation museum. On one occasion, my husband and I visited The Pensacola Lighthouse and Museum, featured on the Travel Channel’s documentary on Haunted Lighthouses of America.
The Blue Angels:
The Blue Angels, the United States Navy’s Flight Demonstration Squadron, was formed in 1946 and is the oldest formal flying aerobatic team. The squadron’s six demonstration pilots fly the F/A-18 Hornet in more than 70 shows at 34 locations throughout the United states each year. They still employ many of the same practices and techniques used since 1946.
Naval Aviation Museum:
If you are an aviation enthusiast or not, the Naval Aviation Museum is one of the most interesting places you could ever visit. As one of the world’s largest aviation museums, it is packed with history, intrigue, vintage and modern aircraft and it is FREE! If you ever visit the historic city of Pensacola, Florida, be sure to explore this amazing place.
