Pima Air and Space Museum and the ‘boneyard’ in Tucson AZ

pimaair&spacemuseumI got sidetracked yesterday while talking on the phone to a fellow aviation enthusiast as he shared with me his impressions of the Pima Air and Space Museum. He knew that the National Museum of the Air Force was in my backyard and remembering me talk about the Martin B-26 Marauder on display that had choked up my father-in-law a few years ago (the B-26 kept him safe for 40+ missions in WWII). He mentioned that there was an exhibit at Pima and wondered if I ever traveled out that way (I have not been there).
