From just North of Slide Rock on the way to Fort Tuthill. For Tuthill is a military campground available to active duty and retired at a very reasonable cost.

This is on display outside the Commemorative Air Force Aircraft Museum in Mesa, Arizona.  Again, I didn’t sneak a part of my motorcycle into the phot. What’s wrong with me?  After all, this is a Motorcycle Blog.

Douglas A-26 Invader Aircraft (Miss Murphy 202)

Description from Wikipedia:  The A-26 Invader (B-26 between 1948–1965) was a twin-engined light attack bomber, built by the Douglas Aircraft Co. during World War II, that also saw service during several of the Cold War’s major conflicts.

I saw this on my ride home and had to stop and take a couple photos. Can you believe I didn’t sneak a part of my motorcycle in one of the pics?

This Douglas A-26 Invader was parked on the ramp behind the Commemorative Air Force Aircraft Museum in Mesa, Arizona.
