“The Arizona Aerospace Foundation salutes active military that dedicate themselves so we can celebrate Independence Day, by opening the museum door for the servicemen and women and their family,” stated Yvonne Morris, Executive Director of the not-for-profit Arizona Aerospace Foundation that operates Pima Air & Space. She continued, “Watching the families interact with such enthusiasm for the aircraft is an added bonus.”
