Airplane Graveyard?

by travelgirl3

Hi fellow travellers,

Is anybody familiar with the Airplane Graveyard? How detailed are the tours? Would it be suitable (or boring) for a 10 year old boy?

We'll be travelling through Tucson on our way to Tombstone, and thought it might be interesting.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I assume you are refering to AMARC (Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center) at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

I have been to this airplane graveyard, and not only is it very suitable for a 10 year old boy, but I think anyone would love it. I can't believe it isn't one of Arizona's biggest tourist attractions. It just isn't really publicized.

You should make reservations before you go. The tour starts from the Pima Air Musieum (which is incredible in itself). What they do is load you up on nice tour buses and drive you onto the base. The storage area is HUGE. And this really isn't a graveyard, these are practically ready to go planes, thousands of them. It was so cool to see hundreds of F-18 fighters wing to wing like that. If Mexico ever invades, we are ready.

You cannot get off the bus, but you can take pictures. If I ever do a Tuscon page I will put up all of mine.

Btw: Arizona has several airplane graveyards, one of which is kind of 'secret', but if you drive I-10 between Tuscon and Phoenix, about halfway you will see Pinal Airpark on the left. If you look closely you will see lots of fins over the horizon. There are tons of 747s, 767s, 737s, etc. there.

I'd back up the comment about the Pima Air and Space museum. My kids absolutely loved visiting there.

Check out mht_in_la's (above) Tuscon page. It made me want to go back and visit.

When I went all I did was show my drivers license. I had a reservation, but the tour wasn't full and a few people bought tickets right then.

Travel Tips for Tucson

ASDM - before you enter

by matcrazy1

Watch for Palo Verde trees before you enter Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. There are a few trees with characteristic green trunks and branches. Look at my picture. Hmm... do you know any other tree like that?

Tombstone

by Martinewezel

Tombstone, is located about 70 miles out of Tucson, which is a perfect day trip.
In this old historic mining town, the main attraction are situated in and around Allen Street.
More info on my Tombstone page.

By far some of the best Mexican food in Arizona!

by agarces about Mi Nidito Restaurant

Each time I visit Tucson, I stop in here for some of the best mexican food around. This restaurant has been around since 1952. The walls on the inside are covered with photos of the more famous visitors that have dined here. If you are looking for some 'real' authentic mexican food, give this place a try. Last time I went to Mi Nidito, I had the President's Plate (apparently this is what former President Bill Clinton when he visited the restaurant). I also really enjoy the chicken enchiladas, chile rellenos, and the tamales.

French!?

by blueskyjohn about Bistro Zin

This place has great atmospher and music selection is great. There is an outdoor fireplace on the pation and there are table for dinner next to and in front of the fireplace. The staff are very friendly.

The food is good but a little over price and the serving size is smaller than other restaurants in the area. The desserts are great!
