But, But … They’re ILLEGAL!

Air-Minded: Moving Day at the Museum

During most of the years I flew fighters and trainers for the USAF, I never paid much thought to the disposition of aircraft on the ramp.

Local Color: Catalina Honor Camp

“Remember the couple from England who were here last month? I took them on a hike to the ruins of the Japanese internment camp on Mount Lemmon.”

“There was a Japanese internment camp on Mount Lemmon?”

That’s how the conversation went, me being the dummy who didn’t know about the camp. I’ve lived at the [...]
