    I'm not particularly into planes or WWII memorabilia, but I enjoyed it here nonetheless. Worth a look if you're in the area.

    This is worth the $15 to get in. Examples of any plane you can think of? Check! Top gun plane? Yep! I don't necessarily have a special interest in airplanes, but this was worth the visit!

    It's in Arizona and the buildings are NOT air conditioned. Pales in comparison to the Air Force museum in Dayton.

    The aircraft exhibits at Pima Air & Space Museum are wonderful, but it’s the bone-yard next door with 4,400 abandoned jets that will make your jaw drop. Tours are first come, first served.
