We were very fortunate that when we arrived after lunch that a Museum Docent, Tom Collins (yes - just like the drink), was starting a free walking tour of the main hangar buildings of the museum. Mr. Collins was a former military pilot and was very knowledgeable about all of the aircraft and shared some fascinating stories associated with each plane.
A portion of the aircraft we saw while on our tour of the Pima Air and Space Museum. Hopefully I am getting the I.D. correct on the photos I took.
