A look down one of the “streets” in the outdoor portion of the Pima Air & Space Museum

Tucson, Arizona is home to the University of Arizona and also Raytheon Missile systems.  Those two companies, along with the US Air Force, form the largest three employers in the city.  However, Tucson is also home to a unique AvGeek attraction, one that will astound any true aviation fan.

The Pima Air & Space Museum is located about a five-minute drive from Tucson airport and on the boundaries of Davis Montham Air Force Base.  The museum is the largest privately funded aviation museum in the world, yes… the world.
