Is that S-3 Viking active or preserved on base? Looks like a nice selection of aircraft at the show. :clap:

Thanks for the nice comments, I believe the S-3 is part of the National Naval Aviation Museum also at NAS Pensacola which they dragged out for the show.

Nice Shots! The Twilight show is new since I last did Pensacola. Regarding the Preserved/Museum aircraft, I generally consider any airframe with multiple (rusty) chain-downs to be a grounded item....but shot #2 possibly defies that logic? :facepalm:

Skyhawk is stunning and MiG-17 is also highly appealing, some nice shots among these, could you post them larger? :up:

Cheers mate, next time I'll try & remember to, they're only that size because when I posted them on another forum that's the biggest they allow.
