Restored jet marks anniversaries

PENSACOLA, Fla. -- A restored F/A-18 jet painted in the blue and gold colors of a Blue Angel jet, was unveiled at the entrance to Naval Air Station Pensacola on Tuesday. The unveiling is one of a series of events this year marking the 100th anniversary of the base and 50th anniversary of the Blue Angels flight demonstration team. The F/A-18 replaced an F-11 that had been on display at the site since 1965. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, 07/02/14)
