This is a great place to visit. They have many, many planes on exhibit, inside and outside.
After my presentation on American Airmen in WW2 @AZCAF 1st time on a B-17. Fantastic, a true "sentimental journey" for me. A great museum!
Was so cool to see my fave WWII bomber up close! Thanks @RKSAirport and @AZCAF #MaidintheShade
