Based on an overwhelming number of personal recommendations from friends - we made a visit to the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson. This was our first visit to the museum and we opted to go self-guided through the five display hangars and aircraft located outside on the grounds. (The Pima Air and Space Museum is highly recommended by us too!)
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.
I know - not an aircraft... took this photo of a Hellfire Missile trainer in honor of my Dad. My father spent the many years of his career with Rockwell-Collins overseeing the installation of the guidance systems (made by Rockwell-Collins) in the Hellfire Missiles for the U.S. Government. His last assignment was working in Sweden overseeing the guidance system installation in Hellfires sold from the U.S. to Sweden.
This missile can be launched mobile or attached to the A-10 Thunderbolt II or an Apache helicopter. Hellfire video below...
We are retired, live/travel full-time in a travel trailer, and enjoy the outdoors.
