Heading down from Phoenix. I think the first time I went was around '82 when I was 8. Going to take the boneyard tour, also. Just wondering if anyone on here has any requests for pictures of specific aircraft. If you do, let me know.

Have been there twice. If you enjoy aircraft its the place to go.

Hope you enjoy the museum as much as I did.

It's 971 at the Museum, not 976. Also 63-8057 please, she was one of ours at Hickam. Nice to see she didn't come to a bad end like one of our other old jets did.

That is a fantastic museum. I have been there many times over the years, the last time being maybe 5 or so years ago. It has improved both in quality and quantity. I just read recently that Boeing donated one of the 777 prototypes.

It was one of the 787 prototypes actually. It was ZA002, the second Dreamliner built. It was kind of amusing because it was painted in ANA colors, but they sent it to Pima, instead of the Japan museum. They got the one painted in Boeing colors.

You're right, it was a typo, I meant 787.

imgur.com... imgur.com... Took a few pics, some pretty crappy, lol. But it is what it is. Was a fun trip. My Dad let me drive his new vette with my GF, and he followed in his Viper. I really enjoyed watching my dad get cornered by the docents. Neither of us are very social, we just want to walk around and look, but he never saw them coming. I did and moved out quickly. Not knocking on the docents, what they do is great. Wouldn't have the great displays we have without them. I first went to this museum in '82 when I was 8. It was a couple acre dirt lot back then. It is now one of the best aircraft museums around, and I've been to quite a few of them.
ETA first time I've seen a 787, and I was surprised how big it was.
