These statues are well worth a stop if you are in Virginia Beach. There is a lot of history surrending the statues.

A small but unique park with granite & bronze monuments dedicated to the history of the US Navy's use of aircraft. Statues & plaques which tell the history of the people, ships, squadrons, aircraft, etc. from the beginning to present day.
