Aircraft Bone Yards

IO9.com just had a cool article about Bizarre Aircraft Graveyards Lots of photos and links. Amazing and at times sad to see these 'grounded' birds.

While living in Phoenix I took a trip to Tucson to visit a school friend and while I wasn't able to visit any of the nearby bone yards I did visit the Pima Air & Space Museum. It's worth the trip if you have the chance and it is just about across the street (other side of the airfield) from one of the big bone yards.

Thought I'd share some pics from the Pima Air & Space Museum. These are from 2001 so the quality isn't so great.

There is both indoor and outdoor exhibits

Funny little bumble bee. This would make a fun looking foamie.
