Pima Air and Space Mesuem

Not exactly shooting related but something that has been on a to do list for a while. Today Dad and I went to the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tuscon AZ.



Last time we had been down there was two to three years prior, since then they added a lot of things.
For example
Boeing 787 Dreamliner

F-14 Tomcat (enter TOPGUN Reference Here)

SR-71 Blackbird

PBM-5 Mariner

Wheel Well of the Mariner (water bottle for scale)

A-10

C-47 Skytrain

B-24

B-25

B-29 "Sentimental Journey"

KB-50

X-15

B-17G "I'll Be Around"

EC-135

Hind (Enter Monster Hunter International reference here)
It was really Fun to see all the Aircraft. As one of the many docents added, 80 acres and 300 aircraft.
Next time hopefully We could see the Davis-Monthan Boneyard tour. that would be pretty cool.

If you are ever in the Tuscon area, it is worth the few hours to walk around, seeing hundreds of historic aircraft.

  1. Those Hinds sure are ugly - but I wouldn't want one chasing me!
