Must be Roswell?

It’s not from around here. There’s too much greenery.
Reminds me of a time when some friends and I were hiking in the foothills of the mountains south of town.
We were looking out over a big flat valley and one of us spotted a glint in the sky waaaay off in the distance. Turned out to be an Air National Guard pilot on some fun run “training flight”, doing nearly Mach 1 about 80-100 foot off the deck. We felt the shockwave as he blasted by us. Took all of about 15 seconds from teensy speck to WHOOOOOOM!
No boom hence nearly Mach 1. He saw us too, he waggled his wings as he flew over.
Living next to the AFB with the Boneyard means I get to see all sorts of aircraft flying in; plus they do Airshow training here every year, so I get to see stuff like P-51’s, F-16’s, P-48’s and A-10’s flying over my house in formation.

Oh, lookie who forgot the closing tag after ‘nearly’.
I bet my hubby would like to visit that boneyard. He’d probably be able to identify most of the aircraft along with a brief dissertation on each about what their strengths and weaknesses are/were, when and where they were used and, for many, who flew them.
Are any visitors allowed?
MDavis, there are tours, managed through the Pima Air and Space museum (itself a really cool place) http://www.pimaair.org/tour-boneyard
Ooh! I gotta tell hubby. I bet he knows already, but I gotta tell hubby.
Or a remake of North By Northwest.
