Pima Air Museum

The Pima Air Museum in Tucson Arizona has an amazing collection of aircraft and is a must-see for any aviation enthusiast. Plan for an all day visit & lots of photography. The museum consists of serveral hangers and a huge outdoor exhibit area. Take your time and spend several hours walking through the indoor exhibits and the outdoor planes. You can get very close to most of the planes and come away with a deeper appreciation for both the aircraft and the crews who flew them.

The key to the Pima Air Museum is it's volunteers. You'll find our ( aging ) WWII veterans here ready to tell the stories of the planes and the war up close and personal along with Korean, Vietnam, and all sorts of other dedicated veterans who share their time and their knowledge. Seek these folks out and be sure to ask questions.

I try to capture the planes in a manner which conveys the history and the heritage which each plane posseses. Some of my post processing is aimed at trying to make the plane stand out for what it represents.

I try to be accurate with my identifications. For those of you who want to know more about the specific planes, the following Pima Air Museum link takes you to a comprehensive & searchable list of the entire collection. You will find extensive information about each plane shown in this gallery. < http://www.pimaair.org/aircraft.php?so=Name >

I hope that you enjoy this gallery as it's meant for those who flew or worked on these planes and those who dream of flying and history. -- Barry Liimakka
