 The bacon salute pic above was from breakfast yesterday morning in Pensacola Florida on the last day of the 2014 AirPigz Naval Aviation Museum MeetUp.  The group was a bit smaller this year, largely due to me being late getting info out, but wow did we all have a great time! Three days at the museum with nonstop friendly avgeek chat plus dinner and breakfast together as well... and as long as there's some bacon in there somewhere, it all makes a perfect combo : )

 I left Pensacola about noon yesterday to make the 14 hour trip (plus another 5 hours to sleep) back home. And while the temps were bitter cold when I got back home in Indiana early this morning, we did have some pretty good weather in Pensacola on Saturday and Sunday after kicking off the meetup on Friday with a pretty chilly day for the Florida panhandle.

 It was my first ever trip to the Naval Aviation Museum and I enjoyed it a lot. It's a much smaller facility than the Air Force Museum in Dayton Ohio, but the collection of aircraft was excellent. A major distinction is that while the AFM has most all of the regular aircraft roped off to limit how close you can get, the Navy museum makes their aircraft much more accessible. It's really great to be able to get that close to so many historic aircraft, and I'm pleased to say that the museum attendees have done a great job of not abusing this great privilege.

 I'll have a post up before long with loads of pix, but for now I just wanted to be sure y'all knew that there was bacon at this meetup! (meatup? : )

Real people and real bacon at the 2014 AirPigz museum meetup!
