The excitement of seeing a U.S. Air Force aircraft is hardly deniable. When seeing over 60 of them at a time and even stepping inside some of them, it becomes a day to brag about. This day takes place at March Field Air Museum. To name a couple of the well-known models on display, the museum features the B-25 used to bomb Tokyo after Pearl Harbor and the B-29 Superfortress used to drop the atom bomb on Hiroshima. Besides the retired aircrafts on the ground, there is also action in the air—not an air show, it is business. Over the wired fence, on March Air Reserve Base's runway, modern USAF air crafts land and take off daily. –Hoiyin Ip
