    Been there a couple of times when I lived in Biloxi, Ms. which is only about 48 miles from there. It's very impressive. Don't remember the MiG though. Must be a new exhibit.

    The submarine pictured is the USS Drum SS328. To read an account of an impressive war record, search for the Drum online and read the Wikipedia article. 12 successful war patrols is incredible!

    hkruss,
    If you haven't been over here to NAS Pcola to the museum, you should try it. Great displays.

    I was there back in the early 70's while stationed at Keesler AFB, MS. They just had the USS Alabama and Drum then. Looks like even more fun now.

    I saw the Alabama and the Drum back in the late 70's. I got the opportunity to visit the USS Missouri and the remains of the Arizona a few weeks ago.
