For Fitz (And anyone interested in aircraft)

Found today (not sure how long this has been up) that Google has changed their maps again. Now you can do a virtual footwalk tour of the Pima Museum in Arizona.

This link should take you to eye level, staring at a monster aircraft. Feel free to 'walk' the entire grounds. Far as I can tell you have a lot of virtual options, and also due to the fact that the museum is so large itself.

I don't know how I missed this, back in February, and I thank you for sending it. Today I had to log in again, and saw all these messages on Roundhouse Discussions, that I was unaware of. I thought we would get an alert when something was posted here, but I never saw one. Anyway, the first vision was of a B-36. I have been to Pima and as far as I remember they do not have a B-36. I managed to photograph what I believe is one of the only two left, at Castle AFB museum back in 06. Thank you for sending that.

Fitz...I believe the B-36 at Pima is a recent acquisition. It was stored at DFW Airport for many years, in pieces.
