Pima! Airplanes! Nathan’s Version of Heaven!

[Mi-24. A Russian attack helicopter]

For this year’s Fall break we headed to see my Grandpa, and on the way home we stopped by the Pima Air and Space Museum. This museum may be Nathan’s most favorite place anywhere. It is full of old military planes, retired civilian airliners, and a big “boneyard” of airplane parts. Nathan is plane obsessed, and it makes me happy to watch him explore the museum every time we go. I also feel like I get an education each time- Nathan can rattle off facts about planes at an alarming rate.

[B-58 Hustler (the “sexiest bomber ever” according to Nathan)]

[B-57 Canberra]

[Navy Helicopter]

My favorite part of the museum is in the yard where they have turned about six planes into art installations. These planes are decorated in wacky and beautiful ways, and they fascinate me every time I see them.

    That place looks awesome!! I recognize some of those because they have them on Fort Rucker. I will have to take my hubby one day!

    • Girl, I read your blog- love it!! Ft. Rucker is where we are hoping to end up. Nathan wants to be a helicopter pilot. He is hoping for a flight spot once he commissions! You guys will definitely have to go to Pima-we go every time we are in Phoenix.

        That’s awesome!! It’s intense, but being a part of the ‘Fly Army’ community is amazing!!

I’m glad you’re here!
