Not me unfortunately, but a work colleague has gone on a 2-week vacation to AZ specifically to visit Pima and AMARG. Knowing roughly what is there- never been to Pima, but I did use to visit AMARG every now and then to rob brake discs from the P-3s that used to be there- I asked her to get some specific photos, with the board in mind. Here they are, ladies and gentlemen, I give you The Big Stick, and its snarling noise machine.

EDIT- sorry guys. All the pics are 100kb too big to get through the quote limit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not jealous, much ;)

Actually, nowadays the dust would probably kill my contact lenses in 5 seconds flat, so I'm probably better off where I am :( at least I can see a BAC Lightning T.5 (XS458) from here! (Along with some BAe 146 and assorted boring things).
