Pima Air and Space Museum

The Smithsonian Air & Space Museum and the Annex are incredible. But for the 33rd largest city in the country, this museum is amazing. A & E have to listen to me go on and on and on and on (luckily, they've perfected tuning me out   :-)

These are the pictures from our free trip there today (not repeating many from previous trips). Some reflected portraits. The space hanger was closed, so just planes today. As always, click for larger.
