Pima Air Museum, Tucson, Arizona

Gary and I really enjoy going to air museums.  Pima Air Museum is the second largest, second only to the Smithsonian.  We have been to this museum a total of three times.  Each time we go, we always see something new.  This time we took the guided tram tour.  We really had a great guide.  He was an ex-air force pilot who flew in Viet Nam.  They are in the process of building another hanger, so that means that we will have to return in the future.  I have divided my photos into two groups, Pima Air museum hangers, and Pima Air Museum outside tour.
