About a month after we moved Arizona, we took a day trip down to Tucson and checked out the Pima Air and Space Museum. We had been wanting to visit this museum for several years, as they have an outdoor exhibit dedicated to Bob’s time in the Air Force. The icing on the cake was all the other exhibits.
Given how many times I’ve had the chance to photograph the Blue Angels, you’d think I would have seen the planes up close before this visit.
B17G “I’ll Be Around”
Corvair B-36J “Peacemaker”
Aero Spacelines B-377SG “Space Guppy”
One of the oddest shaped planes I’ve ever seen. Somewhat like a zeppelin in plane form.
Grumman HU-16A “Albatross”
Lockheed C-130A “Hercules”
Lockheed C-141A “Starlifter”
McDonnell Douglas F-15A “Eagle” Fighter
USAF Thunderbirds McDonnell Douglas F-4E “Phantom II”
