The Pima Air & Space Museum was on our agenda for today. We have been here before but thought we’d go have another look. They have indoor hangar space the size of four football fields plus 150+ outdoor planes.
You can walk around the yard and look at all the planes, or you can take a free narrated tram ride out there.
There are hangars where they keep the really cool and historically significant planes.
As well as a Space Gallery:
For an additional free of $7 we took the Boneyard Tour over to the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. There are around 4,000 planes here that are retired or semi-retired, used for parts, or being refurbished for use. This is a narrated tour and you do not get off the bus.
We spent almost the whole day there. Very interesting. I took 170 pictures, it was hard cutting them down to just these.
- Gasoline: none
- Lodging: free
- Admission & boneyard tour: $42.25
I really enjoyed these pictures. As the daughter of an Air Force Pilot it makes me happy to know these planes have been preserved for the public to see.
