Big Fun With Alex
(Sierra Vista, AZ)- As dumb luck would have it, I missed a turn exiting Tucson's airport en route to I-10, and in so doing, I discovered a tremendous airplane boneyard.
This was no ordinary collection of mothballed planes. These were mostly military planes- fighters and transports, mostly American but also Soviet MIGs. I had discovered the Pima Air and Space Museum. Alex was going to love this!

This is a father's joy.
Alex repeatedly said, "I could spend all day here," meaning, in this cockpit.
Dad recreates Richard Nixon, in front of a retired Air Force One.
We spent about four hours here. I can't remember the last time I saw him smile so much.
