Old aircraft don't die. They land in this aviation cemetery just south of Tucson. – Overview
The Pima Air and Space Museum has 100 planes outdoors, many of them open to cockpit inspection, and another hundred aircraft sheltered in the museum's hangars.
The museum houses a Wright flyer, a B-24, a Mach three-plus SR-71 Blackbird, a Mercury space capsule mockup, and a B-17 "Flying Fortress." You'll also find World War II barracks, a display of officers' uniforms, and a considerable collection of homebuilts, ultralights and hang gliders. Head south to the Titan Missile Silo Museum to feel what duty was like in the cold, cramped, control center of this former nuclear warhead launch site. You can even stroke an actual (deactivated) Titan missile. Word to the wise: Don't wear high heels, they'll get stuck in the grated floor.
