Air-Minded: PASM Photoblog II

In lieu of solving the nation’s problems and revealing brilliant new insights on life, I’ll share a few photos I took today while wandering around the outdoor exhibits at the Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona, where I work as a volunteer docent.

I’d heard the restoration team would be moving several aircraft today. Our B-52 bombers are to be repainted, but before they can be towed to the paint barn at least 20 other outdoor aircraft have to be moved to clear a path. This will be a huge, intricate operation and I thought it would be interesting to get some photos of it, but there wasn’t much going on while I was there this morning. I did take photos of two of the B-52s so you can see just how badly they need repainting.

One thing led to another, and I wound up taking almost 30 photos, only 10 of which I’ll post here. You can see the rest in my Air-Minded photoset on Flickr.
