I was "Heartbroken" to see the P3B's and C's taken to ARMAC! Even though I was a Cement-Headed 18 y.o. at the time. I have Very Good Memories of Serving 3 years at NAS Jacksonville. I was assigned to VP-5 Mad Foxes who were So Gun-Ho we earned the Battle (X2)"E" all the time I was there. Like an Idiot I left the Navy. I should have stayed for at least another four years! I still regret this! It was an Honor to serve Our Country and The United States Navy!

Is there an aviation museum at NAS in Jacksonville that is open to the public.

A great pity that you can only see the aircraft in Jacksonville's Heritage Park from a car park near the gate.

As a rescue aircrewman attached to HC-1 Det 2 onboard the USS Midway stationed in Japan from 1973-1975 I spent many hours in the starboard delta in this very same helo on dispaly here.We also used it extensively during the evacuation of Viet Nam in 1975 and also in assisting recovering abandoned aircraft in Thailand following the downfall.

I served in the VC-62 squadron 1953-1955 in the para. rigger section. We had banshee's and cougar jet serving as photo planes. What was the class of these planes; F-8? or what. Thanks, Bob

I flew corsair August, sept. and oct. 1944 and the traffic pattern was unbelievable. There was accidents every day. Lost one of our eight in our group. The corsairs were Brewster built and no electric start and all bird cages. Lucky to survive that training. Have some early patches Bob

My grandfather flew planes like this including the mars which was a four engine version of this plane. I spent alot of time with my grand father and listened to alot of stories about his naval carrier. I would like to come see tthis plane and see if there is any more information on my grand fathers history in the navy. My grandfather was Lt.Commander Patrick Byrne. Hugh Phillips
