Hot Air

F-4 Corsair

On Monday, the Earp clan spent the day at the Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson. The museum is comprised of four indoor hangars and a desert floor lot which features more than 300 historical aircraft. It’s pretty bad ass, and the kids really enjoyed it last time we were here.

Yes, the desert floor at high noon is not exactly accommodating to heat-o-phobic easterners, but it’s worth it to see B-52 bombers, F-15 Strike Eagles, and Russian Hind-D’s (below).

We planned on staying for an hour or two, and that quickly turned into an almost four-hour stay. It was well worth it. I got to see an A-10 “Warthog” up close, and got some kickass photos, including one of my favorite fighter, an F-14 Tomcat. Sploosh!
