Here's the video I took. Like I say, the commentary is bad due to the wind noise. It starts off looking towards the south and the Mexican border, which is beyond the mountains. You can also see, in the distance, the Boneyard, where surplus aircraft are stored and dismantled.

I don't know about that, Dug as it's so long since I saw the movie. But the desert air is perfect for storing aircraft out of doors. The have something like $27 billion worth of aircraft in storage there.
Here's the final set of photos that I recently uploaded. These were taken on 5th May at the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum. It contains plants and animals found in the Sonora Desert that stretches from southern Arizona (including Tucson) into northern Mexico.
I made an early start and got there at 7.30 am. The early pictures are of Gates Pass, which is the twisty mountain road through the Tucson Mountains.
The early start meant that I got to see some animals that I'd never managed to see there before - including the mountain lions. It's a fabulous place to visit and I'd heartily recommend it.
Interesting photo's Tony, it's one of the reasons I hoped that the NADWC would go back there to phoenix or somewhere else in Arizona, I liked the dry heat and the chance to explore a bit futher would be good.
