I was in Service Test from the late 60's to early 70's.I worked on CH53's doing engine shake tests and went with a group to Fla to develop sweeping mines for the first time. Pax River was the best duty station being close to DC and the ocean. I was there when they tested the first F14 Tomcat. Wow that was some aircraft!Made it back last year place will always been in my heart.

Yes, both the X-32 & X-35 are on display here. I strongly recommend watching PBS Nova's "Battle of the X planes" before coming here. The other X-35 is housed indoor in the Smithsonian Hazy Museum in VA.

I work with adult individuals with disabilities and we visited the museum in early July. Our group was very excited to visit the museum and were looking forward to it for days. Although we were late arriving, our tour guide, Chuck Kerr, was very patient as we ate lunch before out tour and continued his patience throughout the tour. But I was very disappointed when a few of my staff came to me after our visit to share that there was an employee of the museum that was openly degrading and rude to them as well as toward our individuals. It was later discovered that this person was an Admiral and the main person 'in charge'. The comments relayed to me were disrespectful and hurtful to those individuals who heard them. It is hard to fathom that in this day and age that some people are so unenlightened as to the needs and feelings of those with disabilities. And then to think that they are in such a position as to deny them enjoyment and having access to an otherwise wonderful experience. I plan to contact others who manage and support this museum to let them know of our experience.

I have been to the The Patuxent River Naval Air Museum many times, and it has definitely been improved. The planes they have on display are great. My favorite has always been the F-4D Douglas Skyray. (I don't like the later designation F-6D.) I want to visit the museum more than my nephew! It's a great place for kids and everyone who appreciates lots of neat aviation-related stuff. The volunteers do a great job. The gift shop is very good also. A don't miss destination if you're in the area.

I went here for the Oct. 05 Air show and this is a top notch facility. What a diverse range of aircraft. Let hope their new digs are even better.

everyone should know that one each of the JSF concept aircraft (Boeing & GD) are on display at this museum. A rare one of a kind thing to be able to see and photograph.

I visited the PRNAM last 25 February 2004 when I was in southern Maryland. The museum is the most extensive showcase of aircrafts I ever seen in my life. The tour to this museum is worth my stay in the United states. And rest assured that I would be bringing my relatives to see the outstanding displays when I come back in the United States. And whenever I have friends who visits Maryland & DC, I always remind them to drop by the magnificent Patuxent River Naval Air Museum. Congratulations to the people who made the collection possible. God Bless!

I visited PAX today, 06/21/03 and as usual I did enjoy myself very mcuh. The aircraft are well maintained and taken care of. Patuxent River Naval Air Museum should be on anyone's must see list. I have travelled to many museums on the East Coast, including the USAF Museum at Wright Patterson AFB. PAX is not the largest I have seen, but it is certainly one of the very best and I hope to see it again, soon. Thanks for a job well done!!!!
