    Random pics whilst on the Coronado Island

    Some are interesting. January is off season here, people flock to this place during summer when it is unbearably hot. Go figure. Almost forgot, the famous Coronado brunch is $95 per PERSON, sorry I'll never know how it tastes. There are really good restaurants around for a fraction of this price.

    You were in the People's Republic of California with a mild to severe disposition towards objects that were affiliated with the military, and they did not send you to prison as a terrorist?

    Ha-ha-ha, sorry, Ja-ja-ja, in Spanish. San Diego is an exception to the anti-military rule in California, it is probably the highest concentration of military bases in US, this city would not exist without the military. So they cringe and say "thank you for your service".

    View of the above barrier from the other side. Difficult to imagine this not being the exit.

    The aviator's house in the original post added another photo after cleaning the rest of the display. Here it is.

    Nice to see a Skyhawk there - one of the best planes of its era IMO

    Yes, USS Midway is a big tourist attraction, here is my post from last year http://www.bocn.co.uk/vbforum/thread...ego-California. Of all the things in San Diego, Camp Pendleton EOD was the biggest surprise to me. I just came back from Edwards AFB, shall post as soon as I adjust and sort all the pics. What a place!!! Everything there is one of a kind, most things are prototypes.
    I love Skyhawk too, because it is so cute being the smallest bomber ever made, and because I can actually recognize it, and because it was the sole witness of Gulf of Tonkin incident.

    I decided to attach Don Hubbard's Naval career description (the aviator's house with photos above is Don Hubbard's house) http://www.coronadonewsca.com/news/c...74612dfec.html. It has more historical information about his achievements.
