Pictured: program title from DVD art Sky Blue Sea
Blessed by nature with abundantly clear blue skies and the deep blue sea, Long Beach, California was home to many of the most significant developments and accomplishments in America's naval and aviation histories. From 1910 to 1990, Long Beach naval and aviation activities made worldwide headlines and featured the most famous entrepreneurs, aviators, pioneers and daredevils. Warm weather coastal fascination enticed presidents such as Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan, all of whom encouraged U.S. Navy expansion in Long Beach. The sky was no limit for the adventurous but rather a proving ground for pilots and pioneers like Amelia Earhart, Howard Hughes, Charles Lindbergh, William Randolph Hearst, Donald Douglas and many more.
