The P5M Marlin has been undergoing restoration at the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, Fla. This aircraft will soon be displayed inside the Museum’s new exhibit hangar, Hangar Bay One. This new addition, the first in 14 years, will house approximately 35 aircraft and add an additional 55,000 square feet to the Museum complex.

Attendees include community members, active and retired flag officers, senior Naval officers from local commands, executives from the aerospace industry, Department of Defense officials and special guests from across our nation.
