Fodor's Arizona & the Grand Canyon 2014
Pima Air and Space Museum
Pima Air and Space Museum Review
This huge facility ranks among the largest private collections of aircraft in the world. More than 300 airplanes are on display in hangars and outside, including a presidential plane used by both John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson; a full-scale replica of the Wright brothers' 1903 Wright Flyer; the SR-71 reconnaissance jet; and a mock-up of the X-15, the world's fastest aircraft. World War II planes are particularly well represented.
Meander on your own (even leashed pets are allowed) or take a free walking tour led by volunteer docents. The open-air tram tour (an additional $6 fee) narrates all outside aircraft. Hour-long van tours of Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG)—affectionately called "The Boneyard"—at nearby Davis-Monthan Air Force Base provide an eerie glimpse of hundreds of mothballed aircraft lined up in rows on a vast tract of desert. This $7 AMARG tour, available only on weekdays on a first-come, first-served basis, is a photographer's delight. An on-site restaurant, The Flight Grill, is open daily from 9:30 to 4:30.
