    "The B-52 is one of the most enduring USAF aircraft . . ."
    I used to have a cartoon at my desk, with a 4 star general at a podium, and a formation of B-52s flying in the background. The caption had the general saying, "There will now be a fly by of B-52s, to end this retirement ceremony for the B-2."

    Speaking of old jets... flying a few days ago and heard what sounded like a T-33 in the pattern. Got them on video and could see the tip tanks.

    Yesterday as I was driving near the runway it taxied by then took off. Pretty sure it was this guy, rolled down my windows to hear that old turbo jet action.

    Make sea-planes great again. A demo from our Japanese allies. Something like this might just be useful even if the China situation doesnít get out of hand.

    Iíve lived in Arizona all my adult life. Traveled the state extensively. Visited Tucson frequently for both work and other stuff.

    I got lost last week driving back from Bisbee when I left the freeway early. Ended up at an entrance to Davis Monthan AB, got turned around and got lost again. But while driving to somewhere I could recognize, I drove past a huge airplane parked next to the road. Wait, What? I had to turn around to make sure what I saw. It was a B-52, parked right next to a B-36, etc. It was the Pima Air Museum.

    Holy Cow. Very damn cool. I always thought the Museum was the Davis Monthan Bone Yard, but I guess I was wrong.

    Iím going back this winter around Christmas to spend the day and maybe get a tour of the Bone Yard on the same day.

    We've made the trip to Pima twice. Extremely cool air museum! You may want to actually allow two days to visit. It's massive and a LOT to take in on a hard run of 3 or 4 hours. Plenty of other cool stuff in the area too. The Titan II museum was a good visit. Saguaro Forest is just awesome (per my wife: like if Doctor Seuss drew it), etc.

    I built a Shinmeiwa model as a kid. Thought it was cool. And then I really liked the EA6B as well. Built one of those too.

    ... something is obviously wrong with me.

    Make sure you go Thursday-Sunday, the tram tour is only on those days. I learned that the hard way a couple years ago.

    IMO Pima Air Museum is probably the third-best airplane museum in the country, after the Smithsonian and the USAF Museum.

    A P-63 just collided with a B-17 at an air show in Dallas. Devastating.

    Here's a different angle. Looks like the P-63 didn't see the B-17 below him while making the turn.
