Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona is "the" graveyard for
the Air Force's planes (all of their planes.)  There is every kind of
aircraft there ranging from WWII propeller planes to 707's.  They offer
tourson the weekends which are really great.  They bus you around the
base and let you get out and run around the aircraft.  It is really
interesting!  You and your son would love it.  If you want more info just
write back!
