    Siege, these are GREAT photos, and it looks like you had a great visit and a lot of fun.

    Thanks for sharing!

    This is exactly the kinds of experiences people can have when visiting any of the five US Navy aircraft carrier museum ships.

    The only downside of the visit was the wind (probably 20-30 mph). Barely had anytime to stay on the flightdeck as a result.

    They finished the renovation work on the A-4, A-3, F-18, and the A-7 since I visited in December 2014. I have a feeling that they plan on adding more planes since there is definitely more room both above and below deck for more exhibits..

    We are thinking that this fall, during my annual pilgrimage to MD Anderson in Houston, of swinging through Corpus and seeing the Lady Lex.

    For our fifth wedding anniversary (now 33 years ago!), we went to North Padre for three days and had a great time and a lot of fun...but the wind does blow there!
