Modern Day Aviators

 
 

Permanently installed in Virginia Beach, Virginia, The Modern Day Naval Aviation installation at Monument Park showcases the roll of aviation in today's Navy. Monument Park is located in the heart of Virginia Beach, on the waterfront at 25th and Atlantic.  

Three figures and a bomb cart make up the Modern installation. The centerpiece of the scene is the female combat pilot. This was the first time that a female combat pilot has ever been immortalized in bronze. Joining her is another pilot dressed in full flight gear and a Crew Chief. The three are standing around the bronze bomb cart, as the two males listen intently to the female as she tells a story from her most recent mission. 

The sculptures are often viewed by current Navy Pilots from nearby NAS Oceana, as well as the general public. The history of Naval Aviation is on display throughout the park, which attracts millions of visitors every summer.
