We arrived in Virginia Beach the Tuesday after Labor Day and one evening during our stay we were walking up Atlantic Ave and ran across this monument. If you are in the area & have an interest in aviation, do not miss this monument!

This is a wonderful memorial with so much information that it takes about an hour to read and absorb all of it. I learned so much here and will have to come again on our next visit to Virginia Beach.

Right off of the boardwalk when we were visiting, we didn't expect a historical tour of the naval aviation (planes of which could be seen and heard flying right overhead while we were there!), and it was quite a little treat. And the free price...More

This is a terrific monument on the Virginia Beach boardwalk, right behind the Norwegian Lady statue. A rambling bronze and granite set of statues and exhibits recounting the history of naval aviation from the early 1900’s through today. There are many plaques to read along...More
