Thanks. Looks like Phoenix is the way to go. I'm looking forward to it. I've heard a lot about the museums there...oh yeah and that canyon too

The Planes of Fame air museum in Chino has a satellite museum at the Valle airport not too far from the Grand Canyon, not been there yet but heard it is nice.

Tucson has the Pima Air Museum, just off of the I-10 at Valencia exit, south side of Davis-Monthan Airforce Base, a really nice museum, with lots to see and you can buy a ticket for a bus ride through the Boneyard on the base.
There is also a restored ICBM launch base close by also, haven't been there yet either, soon though.
South side of the base, there are several civilian scrapyards with some interesting aircraft awaiting their fate......
I like bikes...
