    AIRCRAFT BONEYARD Tuscon, Arizona Fly-In February 20, 2020

    This is a heads-up message as tickets must be purchased online and well in advance.
    ---- On January 13th only 37 tickets were available for this tour ----

    Tour of the Davis Monthan Air Force Base aircraft boneyard. This is a commercial operation and you must buy tour tickets yourself from the Pima Air Museum. (About $20 each)

    Details at http://pimaair.org/plan-your-visit/available-tours/

    Getting to Davis Monthan and the tour will be on your own. Choose the 2:00pm bus tour. Then BAC will host dinner later at a local restaurant.

    More info to be posted. A mystery local high profile Tuscon BAC member is to be official host of this fly-in.

    I wish this were Feb 9! I could join you. We have to get our coordination down better! I'd love to take some SW Region money too!

    It is now official, Marty Vanover will be our official Tuscon host. He has promised to give a personal tour to the BAC group of the Pima Air Museum prior to (or after) the boneyard tour on February 20, 2020.

    Claudia, (Mrs. Marty) will be the event hostess and will be selecting the restaurant for the BAC dinner. That will be decided as the event unfolds.

    Remember: Space is limited and tour tickets must be purchased NOW!

    Dang! I'd love to go, partly because I always thought Claudia was a figment of Marty's imagination!

    BAC when all of y'all were in short pants, my father and I went on a father/son multi-base racket ball tourney. One of the hosts was DM, and we got a personal tour. Pop saw his F86 from Korea there and went quiet for the rest of the day. His F-100F is at Dayton. The T-Bird lead and his son beat the pants off us at Nellis, but the tour was astounding. I still have the autographed pix.

    Google Buck and Bill Patillo and see who flew L and R wing for the Comets, and who they became. 5 stars between them. Pop flew slot (zero stars).

    Yep, my hero.
