Pima Air Museum, AMARG Boneyard & San Xavier Mission

After a pretty bad start to the day with a flat tyre, then no one could supply a new trye for the car and couldnt drive around with the emergency spare on, I hooked it back to the Airport and they cahnged it for a Ford Explorer. Off south I headed after about 2 hours of running around.

The day was long and fantastic. Finally arrived at PIMA with out a doubt one of the best aeroplane museums i have been to over 300 planes, four hangars and a fantstic walk in the desert heat. This is a must go and see for anyone just for the sheer specatcle of what man has built, engineered and what is now today preserved by these great folks.

Then headed over the AMARG Boneyard. there is now 3300 planes on site. Any palne that has a yellow star on it has a confirmed kill as a fighter jet. Unbleivable spot to visit. Guards are serious no carry abgs etc. And they confirm your identity. They are now cutting up 95 B52 and use F16 as rebulitl drones for training. Interesting tour.

Shot over to San Xavier Spanish Mission, was a great experinec unfortunately it was closed but did get a good walk around well worth the visit if your in the area.
