Going south P.2

Went to see San Xavier Mission, a few miles south of Tuscon.

A National Historic Landmark, San Xavier Mission was founded as a Catholic mission by Father Eusebio Kino in 1692. Construction on the church began in 1783 and was completed in 1797

The Mission.

The courtyard next to the Mission.

After a very nice visit at the Mission we returned to the Pima museum to try and see what we missed on our first time there.

And there was plenty more to see!

B-36 230 foot wingspan. Winner of the cold war.

Mig alley...

C-14, one of two built.

787 Dreamliner

Bev standing in front of the Super Guppy which was used to haul plane and rocket parts. It only had a range of 500 mile so I hope they didn't have to go very far.. It was built on the C-97 platform.

Beautifully restored, airworthy B-17

Me landing the lunar module on the surface of the moon...pffft, nailed it both times!

Holy Helicopter (s)!
(Just a few of the many!)

Plane art...

Numerous Buffs

Bev flies home tomorrow and I ride into Mexico.
