Pima Air Museum

We had heard great things about this museum and ended up staying three hours. I didn't bring my driver's license and had to have it for the Boneyard tour. We spent the time touring some of the buildings with several docents in each one. They shared their experiences flying and the stories about different planes. A person would have to make several visits to get the total tour of everything.

300+ airplanes sounds like it might get redundant but didn't with all of the excellent docents there to share the stories.

WWII bomber


This 93 year old pilot of the B17 of the 390th bomber squadron spent some time with us sharing his experiences in WWII. His crew got shot down over Germany while he was in the hospital with food poisoning. They all survived.  The day he was sick 170 planes left for Berlin and 79 did not return. He is quite a character that lives in Green Valley and volunteers once a week.
Roasting up some green chili to put in the freezer so we don't have to look for places that make burgers with green chili. Looks like there will be some in the eggs in the morning. Hurray!
