Can you beleive Pensacola's Trader Jon's is closed? Here's a story from November 5, 2003.
HT-18 / HT-8 had the last winging party there on November 7, 2003, the day before it closed. My Dad went there in 1968, my Uncle had his winging party there in 1955. Now it's part of the Naval Aviation Museum. (See my mini-interview at the bottom of the article in the Pensacola News Journal)
