The Greatest Tragedy in U.S. Aviation
Death Over the Grand Canyon - On the morning of Saturday, June 30, 1956, United Flight 718 collided with TWA Flight 2 over the eastern end of the Grand Canyon. Since the accident involved two of the largest commercial aircraft then in service--a Lockheed Super Constellation, and a Douglas DC-7--it resulted in the greatest loss of life, by far, in any accident of the time.
Museum of Inflatable Creatures
Huge inflated creatures invade Arizona! - Enormous creatures have taken up residence all over Arizona.  Although they can be found at apartment buildings, tree lots, or almost any place, they seem particularly fond of car dealerships.  Our museum has a fine collection of these creatures in their natural habitat.
The Thing--Mystery of the Desert
Mystery of The Thing Solved! - Billboards start popping up before Tucson from the west and around El Paso on the east.  Our crack investigative team has been there and we're not holding anything back.  Our camera has captured The Thing in its natural habitat, and we let you know just what The Thing is and where it came from!
Get Your Kicks on Arizona's Route 66
Route 66 - Bobby Troup told us, "If you ever plan to motor west, travel my way, take the highway that's the best." That highway was Route 66. Now it's a combination of Route 66 and Interstate 40. The longest stretch of old Route 66 is right here in Arizona. So are the Wigwam Motel, the Painted Desert, the Petrified Forest, Meteor Crater, the restored Fred Harvey La Posada, not to mention an assortment of dinosaurs, an oversized jackrabbit, and a host of other roadside attractions. Fasten your seatbelts and we'll take you there.  And we won't forget Winona.
