Pima Air Museum, hangar planes, 2011

Pima Air Museum, located in Tucson, Arizona, is one of our favorite places to visit.  We arrived around 9:45 am, should have gotten there earlier, and took the 10:30 am guided tour of hangar 1 and then stayed with our tour guide for tours of hangar 2 and 3.  Our tour started at the replica of the Wright brother’s plane with our tour guide providing lots of information about the brothers and the first flight.  The tour was free and only lasted 50 minutes per tour.  Tour was well worth the time-so much information for our minds to process.  Sure wish I could remember it all, oh well, there’s always next year.
