During the twentieth century, civil and military aviation has played a prominent role in the history and development of Arizona. Commercial operators have exploited the advantages offered by aircraft to overcome its unique challenges of geography and climate. By virtue of Arizonas dry climate and excellent storage facilities, as well as its clear air and wide open spaces in the Southwest (some might say Old West) area of the continental USA, a wide variety of military aircraft have been based or stored there through the years.The list of military aircraft types that made up the tapestry of Arizona aviation is as extensive as the list of legendary figures who have contributed to its amazing history. While most of the military aircraft types no longer grace the airspace over Arizona, many can be viewed in their former splendor as they stand as gate guards; museum exhibits, or as they stand mothballed in the Boneyard. This booklet provides a comprehensive guide to where these aircraft can be found. Finally, the descriptions of the recovery, restoration and preservation efforts stand as a tribute to the many volunteers who have devoted time, energy and financial support to ensure this rich heritage is preserved.

Arizona Warbird Survivors 2002 has been updated:

Arizona Warplanes

This aviation handbook is designed to be used as a quick reference to the classic military heritage aircraft that have been restored and preserved in the state of Arizona. The aircraft include those flown by members of the United States Air Force, the United States Navy, the United States Army, the United States Marine Corps, the United States Coast Guard, the Air and Army National Guard, and by various NATO and allied nations as well as a number previously operated by opposition forces in peace and war. The interested reader will find useful information and a few technical details on most of the military aircraft that have been in service with active flying squadrons both at home and overseas. 100 selected photographs have been included to illustrate a few of the major examples in addition to the serial numbers assigned to American military aircraft . For those who like to actually see the aircraft concerned, aviation museum locations, addresses and contact phone numbers have been included, along with a list of aircraft held in each museum's current inventory or on display as gate guardians throughout the State of Arizona. The aircraft presented in this edition are listed alphabetically by manufacturer, number and type. Although many of Arizona's heritage warplanes have completely disappeared, a few have been carefully collected, restored and preserved, and some have even been restored to flying condition. This guide-book should help you to find and view Arizona's Warplane survivors.

Update

For those of you who are familiar with the airspace over Arizona and its environs, the weather and colors of the landscape can be incredibly beautiful, particularly early in the morning.  During my tour of duty with NORAD as a member of the Canadian Forces detachment based in Colorado Springs, it had been my privilege to serve alongside a good number of the highly professional airmen and women of both nations working in the Cheyenne Mountain Operations Center.

As an aviation enthusiast, I have learned over the years that there are a lot of us who have an interest in military aircraft and aviation history.  Unfortunately, many retired warplanes which helped to make this history happen have completely disappeared, particularly those from the early years.  Fortunately, a good number of retired warplanes continue to exist, preserved in aviation museums and in some cases as gate-guardians in a wide variety of locations.  Volunteers working in many of these museums have been successful in preserving a good number of them, although many are still being sought and in some cases, being restored to flying condition again.  As an aviation artist, photographer and enthusiast, I have attempted to keep track of where these warplane survivors are presently located, and to try to identify at least one each of every warplane ever flown with a military pilot at the controls.  For those of like mind, the purpose of this handbook is to provide a simple checklist of the classic heritage aircraft that have been preserved in Arizona.  The book includes a number of photographs to try and illustrate an example of each warplane preserved in Arizona wherever possible, and to list the locations in the state for where one can find an example of surviving aircraft now. 

It is exciting to see the actual numbers of restored warplanes increasing as a few rare examples are being recovered from their crash sites in the bush, traded for, or bought back from owners who have been flying them in other countries.  In a few outstanding cases, accurate replicas, such as the X-15, have been constructed and are making a welcome appearance.  One of the aims of this book was to identify what Arizona’s retired warplanes on active service looked like and to help an enthusiast track down more detailed information such as a serial number or museum location which might be helpful in identifying an aircraft.  No list can ever be completely up to date, and therefore, if a reader has additional information to add an update would be most welcome.  It is my sincere hope that more of the aircraft listed here will one day be added to the list of “survivors,” as more of them are recovered and restored.

These four female pilots leaving their ship at the four engine school at Lockbourne are members of a group of WASPS who have been trained to ferry the B-17 Flying Fortresses.  Qualified pilots were in short supply in the USA in 1942, and many were needed to ferry newly built trainer aircraft to the flight schools in the South in order to train more of them.  28 experienced civilian women pilots volunteered to make those ferry flights from the factories to the training schools, forming the first female squadron in America late in the summer of 1942. Between November 1942 and December 1944, 1,074 more women were trained to fly for the squadron, first in Houston and later at Avenger Field in Sweetwater, Texas.  Two programs were founded by Nancy Love and Jacqueline Cochran, the Women’s Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron and the Women’s Flying Training Detachment.  These programs later morphed into the Woman Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) program.  All aircraft operated by the USAAF were flown by WASPs.  In addition to ferrying, they towed gunnery targets, transported equipment and non-flying personnel, and flight-tested aircraft that had been repaired before the men were allowed to fly them again.  For over two years, the WASPs went on to perform a wide variety of aviation-related jobs and to serve at more than 120 bases around the country.  These 1,102 WASPs flew wingtip to wingtip with their male counterparts and were just as vital to the war effort.  Their story is commemorated in the National WASP World War II Museum.

Nancy Love in a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress.  Nancy Harkness Love is known for becoming the first woman to be certified to fly the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress as well as the Douglas C-54 Skymaster, North American B-25 Mitchell, and several other military aircraft.  By June 1943, as Director of of the Women's Auxiliary Ferry Squadron (WAFS) Love was commanding four different squadrons of WAFS at Love Field,Texas; New Castle, Del.; Romulus, Mich., and Long Beach, Calif. The WAFS merged with the Women's Flying Training Detachment (WFTD) on 5 August 1943, creating the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), and Love was placed in charge of all ferrying operations. In total, she was certified to fly 19 military aircraft.  Love continued to work on reports detailing the work of the Air Transport Command after the WASPs were disbanded in 1944.  After the creation of the United States Air Force, Love was awarded the rank of lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserve in 1948.
