Hard to believe that it was just a week ago that I was wandering around the Pima Air and Space Museum like a monkey on crack, lusting over all of the wonderful airplanes for virtually the entire day while my gracious aunt and uncle, residents of Phoenix who came with me, did something or other while I was spending much of my time out in the 107-degree heat taking pictures. And as I always do, I put together my shopping list for when I decide to actually buy a lottery ticket and it hits for millions upon millions of dollars.
For starters, I need one of these:
But heck, if I hit that lottery, I'll be shopping for one of these before the funds are even available for withdrawal:
But sometimes, you just want to bring people with you when you fly fast and low, so for that, a Douglas A-26 Invader is a perfect choice. Pima has two.

This one needs a bit of TLC, but I'd be willing to take it on.
But maybe I'd wanna fly a jet for a bit. I'm betting that I could transition into a North American F-86 Sabre without too much trouble. Pima's got several, including this radome-nosed L-model outside.
Sigh. Enough of that for now. I'll be in my bunk.
