For years the Pima Air and Space Museum has offered bus tours of the Boneyard, located next door. When you purchase your ticket for the museum, you
had the option of adding the bus tour to the ticket price. Then it was simply a matter of going out at the appointed time, showing a government ID,
and boarding the bus.
The bus tours will continue, but starting on November 1st, all tours become reserved. You will need to make a reservation 10 days ahead of your visit,
and can make them up to 90 days ahead. Due to new security requirements, the base will now run a basic background check on anyone reserving a seat on
the bus, and granting a temporary security clearance for the tour.
The tour is well worth the work, and I encourage anyone going to Pima to put in the effort. There is a lot of history that you get to see. You don't
go through the entire Boneyard, but you get to see a lot, and they have many old aircraft sitting there.
