More Arizona cultural activity - Our honeymoon at the US Air Force Boneyard   2007-12-20

 

During the recent trip to Arizona, in addition to a fascinating visit to a nuclear missille silo, another day of our honeymoon as spent at the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tuscon, which included a tour of the US Air Force boneyard at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.    This boneyard is located in the desert as a storage area for air force equipment being stored for various purposes in a location with very low humidity, thus reducing corrosion.   It is one of several military and civilian facilities located in the southwest.
