    Here are some photo's from my road trip to Pensacola last week.

    USS Alabama in Mobile..

    One of my favorite aircraft! Cool jet, bad location for a photo shoot... SR-71

    F-14 Tomcat! My uncle was on the team that restored this F-14. It originally crashed and was a total lose for military use. The Tomcat is no longer manufactured, so the team reconstructed it from scratch and mounted it in front of the Naval Air Museum at Pensacola NAS.

    If you've ever seen an old jet mounted, they are usually not in great condition. This one is perfect in every way and even held its ground against 163 mph wind produced by hurricane Ivan, which nearly destroyed the base in 2004.

    Nice photos and really nice historic pieces of hardware, now probably it is not politically correct to say that those weapons on steroids are cool but...oh boy!

    I had seen an SR-71 suspended in the air at the Smithsonian in DC but this was the first time close up. It's much smaller than I thought. At 2,200 mph, it's definitely on steriods!

    Cool pics Brian! Neat that you actually have family that restored that jet!

    When my son was quite a bit younger than today and I was a scout leader we went to "battle ship cove" in Massachusetts.. If you are ever able to visit it, I highly recommend it!
