    I really like the color. That Beechcraft was never photographed so good.
    I went to the LeMay American Car Museum in Tacoma, WA, for some car pictures but they wouldn't let me in with a tripod. But I needed it and after a short please may I argument I turned around and went home.

    Thank you. I think I would've had the same reaction.

    I live about five miles from the Pima Museum. It is spectacular- the third-largest air museum in the country. There are a huge number of planes outdoors- so I plan to visit with my 4x5. But not until the temps drop and the sun is lower in the sky!

    The Pima Air & Space Museum is very photographer friendly. Several times a year they host night photo shoots after normal museum hours. A terrific place to photograph a wide variety of aircraft. Randy Efros (Cole & Brett Weston colaborator) enjoys taking his LF gear and photographing at Pima - http://www.randyefros.com/portfolio_blackandwhite_2.htm

    Falcon Field in Mesa is also a good place to photograph aircraft. It was originally built as an RAF training facility during WWII. Arizona is rife with public and private locations with aircraft to photograph - both vintage and abandoned.

    I didn't know that. Hopefully next time I'm able to visit family in AZ will be around one of those dates. Maybe a LF meetup opportunity .

    If you are really into aircraft - Pima is without any doubt the best in the West.
    Do some research before you go into the history of the specific aircraft on display.
    There are some very interesting stories.

    The B-36 (the last one built) is an absolute monster of an airplane.
    Hard to imagine they could get that one off the ground with only a little over 17,000HP - go take a look, it is impressive.

    At the Castle museum in Atwater, they have an RB-36 which has open Bomb Bay doors ( only 3 B-36's survive in the US).
    When I walked underneath that one - I was astonished at the volume of both bays.
    But when you look at the casing of a Mk17 Hydrogen Bomb sitting next to the aircraft - you understand !

    But it's a dry heat, Mark. At least that's what I kept hearing through the years. Might stop at Pima next Spring on the way to some wild place E. of Texas....I think the night + day shoot would be superb.
