Something Different Today

I just discovered this site … Plane Finder … and it blew my mind as to the number of planes in the air. Check it out: http://planefinder.net/  Click on any of the planes and you can see what the airline is and more.  Namaste’

P.S. This is my 636th post. I’m still going for 1,000 🙂

The Bone Yard

Today’s adventure was at the Pima Air and Space Museum where some of the old planes from around the world come to rest in peace.  Southern Arizona is the perfect place to keep them because of the dry air, which prevents them from rusting. I took about 75 pictures but am only posting a few.  Maybe I’ll do some more tomorrow.

The one that impresses me most is President Kennedy’s Air Force One, used while he was in office until he was killed in ’62 and then used by President Johnson until ’65.  Something about seeing his plane kind of overtook me.  Who doesn’t remember exactly where they were the day he was assassinated?  At least those of us who were here at the time.  No, that doesn’t make me old!!!!

The reason we went today is that several local artists have been allowed to use airplanes and parts as their canvasses.  I love what they did (in most cases).  See for yourself and let me know what you think about the painted plane.  Click an image to enlarge. Namaste’
