    I am fortunate enough to live 5 miles west of Pensacola NAS and get to see a lot of aircraft flying over on a daily bases. That includes the Blue Angles when they are home training. Also there is the Naval Museum that is on the base which is phenomenal. I am not a pilot and just now in my 50’s have become a Airplane Geek wannabe. Thank you for giving us such a great podcast.
