There’s An Intriguing Airplane Boneyard In Arizona That You Need To Visit

Arizona is well-known as a snowbird paradise—for both the flying and biped kind—because of the mild winters and sunny days that are great for winter food supply and aging joints. But did you know our state is also the perfect retirement home for another flying creature? Well, less of a creature and more of a contraption.

Tours of the boneyard are available on weekdays from the Pima Air and Space Museum, located at 6000 East Valencia Road in Tucson. Tickets cost $7 ($4 for children 12 and under). Additional information can be found on their website, pimaair.org.
