The Magic of Flight
Fly with the Blues and experience the thrill of cruising the skies at Mach speed. Featuring cutting edge aerial photography, this is the story of human potential and the importance of training and performance. From the dawn of manned flight to the modern Space Shuttle, this film has it all. Narrated by Tom Selleck.
See it on the Giant Screen!
The IMAX® Naval Aviation Memorial Theatre is one of the largest IMAX® theatres in the world and has the largest screen in Florida. It took nearly two years to construct the theatre. The screen is 10 times larger than a traditional cinema screen, and fills the whole field of peripheral vision.
Made of a reflective and perforated vinyl, the screen is mounted taut over a scaffold frame containing 690 tons of structural steel and 1,990 cubic yards of concrete. The screen is 62 feet high and 82 feet wide with a frontal surface area of 5,084 square feet. The screen itself weighs over 600 pounds. The projector passes 70mm film at 24 frames per second over a 3-foot diameter rotor turning at 180 mph, projecting an image on the screen magnified 273 times the size of the film frame.
Call (850) 453-2025 or (888) 627-4629 for more information on movies, times, ticket prices and reserving the IMAX® theatre.
*Discount admission applies to children ages 5 to 12 (ages 4 and under are free), senior citizens age 62 or older, military (active, reserve, or retired) and Naval Aviation Museum Foundation members.

Save the Date
October 5th, 2013
50 years ago on June 8, 1963, the Naval Aviation Museum (now National Naval Aviation Museum) opened its doors in a renovated wood frame building constructed during World War II. With only 8,500 square feet of space, the Museum displayed five aircraft which were rotated periodically with others in storage aboard NAS Pensacola. Since that day, the Museum has been through several phases of expansion, bringing the total display area to nearly 350,000 square feet with more than 150 beautifully restored aircraft representing Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard Aviation.
This page will be updated periodically about the event, so be sure to check back often for the latest news and updates about the 50th Anniversary Celebration for the National Naval Aviation Museum.
