 My trip to Corpus Christi
Went all the way down there to go to the Texas State Aquarium to see the dolphins in the underwater viewing area, come to find out the tank was closed for repair and the dolphins were at Sea World San Antonio

Here's the photo album

Oh fantastic pictures! Not only did you get to tour the carrier which is cool in itself, but you got to see all those great aircraft too!
Thanks for posting the link

One thing...I could have sworn the F9F was nicknamed "Panther" and not Couger...unless the 8T designation means it is another type of plane altogether.

I shot some video which includes the planes and their I.D. signs, so I have to go in and look

Turns out it was named both:

F9F Panther:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grumman_F9F_Panther

F9F Couger:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grumman_F-9_Cougar

The Couger was an updated Panther with swept wings. Both Ted Williams and John Glenn flew Panthers during Korea for the Marines.
