What's funny is, I've never seen that overhead shot before. But as for the rest of the pictures, yes I do remember them.

Thanks for the pics. Dad brought me to that show and I just could get enough.

I think that is the best airshow that ever happened. All my favorite planes are represented and flying except the B36... and all you had to do was hop in a car for a 20 minute drive to Greater Southwest Airport to see one on static display.

BTW, the airport had a great history too, if you're into that kind of thing: http://www.members.tripod.com/airfie...FtWorth_NE.htm

Saw this at PHX last week and thought of you. Pima was the wrong way though, so I didn't get to see it.

While I was at the Pima last year a volunteer told me they are raising money to build a new hangar so they can park the B-36 and one of their B-52s nose to nose. Hopefully it will come to fruition.

Well how about a five-engined B-17?

P&W tested their T34 turboprop in this bird. I guess they didn't have enough confidence to test it in a single engine airframe, lol.

Note: this aircraft was eventually restored into the Liberty Belle.

I went to the Pima Air Museum when I visited my cousin in Phoenix in 2008. They were excited about the upcoming B36 exhibit, but I think it wasn't made public until 2010 or so. I did get to see all kinds of other awesome stuff like an SR71, B47, and one of the B52s that carried the X15 on its flights. I need to get back there and see that old B36.
