Carol's favorite aircraft is the SR-71, something I like to call the James Bond of spy planes. It is perhaps the most smooth aircraft ever made. You can see in the photos the lines and angles of the bodywork. It is a world apart from the C-46, but wow! She supported TR-1's, sort of like U-2s, when she was active duty and understands the mission the SR-71 had. The Museum has a great deal of pride in this aircraft and it shows.
You can see a number of aircraft from different eras of which I offer just a sample. The Museum has a restored B-24 that my adopted father supported in Europe. It is an awesome looking aircraft and is open beneath so as to peer into the bowels of the plane through the bomb doors. Other aircraft one can see are previous Air Force Ones, a B-36 bomber and the list goes on. The tour guide we had was a F-15 pilot who knew his stuff.
Finally got a visit in to the Tucson paths. We have similar in Albuquerque but I have to say I have never seen a trail with a bicycle repair mechanic on it who also sells drinks and snacks with a place to sit and talk with other cyclists. I started at the north end of town where the path ends and rode east. I did run into some road construction closing that part of the trail but got around it. The rest of the trail was not too bad, in fact pretty good. I stopped after 22 miles as Carol had finished shopping and had frozen items that needed to be brought back to the freezer in the rig. I am going to cycle downtown and check it out as well as out to the most eastern part of the trail. Tucson has a very active inline skating community, most of the skaters are far more advanced than my old bones are. Nonetheless I will get on this trail with skates just to try it. Beautiful scenery is breath taking, or perhaps it was the bicycling:)!
