Insider: History Takes Flight

    Family Insider: History Takes Flight at the National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola

    By Carrie McLaren

    There's a grand and amazing history to America's naval aviation program, but there's not likely to be room in your brain for any of that when you're watching the Blue Angels perform death-defying stunts, tearing across the sky and shaking the ground. At the National Museum of Naval Aviation, your kids will learn something about Navy pilots and what they do, but they'll also long remember that not everything they see in movies or on television is just science fiction. And as a museum, one visit will connect on all channels: you'll learn about the long, storied history of the program, marvel at the technology of the planes as you walk around them and be amazed at the fantastic skill of the people you'll meet who fly them.
