The Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona has over 300 aircraft on display, and is well worth a visit. Click the image above for a larger view of the planes. Did you notice anything interesting about the perspective of this airplane panorama? The answer, after the jump.

The flat panorama at the top of the article is actually a 360 degree pano. This may not be apparent if you’re focusing on the content of the image more than the form. Below is a 360 degree interactive panorama of the same photo.

  1. The shadow problem would be fixed if you put the Sun in the middle. Did they allow you to shoot at night?

    1. Hey Tong – There are so many planes and wings everywhere that it made sense to stick the sun on the right. I wasn’t there during the full moon, so I didn’t try to arrange night access. They do have private events at the museum. The boneyard requires a bus tour onto the nearby active military base and you can’t get off the bus. There was one pretty interesting private storage yard along the south end of the base, but I haven’t contacted them about access because I’m not sure when I’ll be back in Tucson. Worth investigating in the future though!
