TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A film crew will be taping a portion of The Food Network's show ‘The Great Food Truck Race' in Tucson on Monday.

It is all taking place at the Pima Air and Space Museum, right in front of Air Force One.

The iconic jet, named Air Force One during the Kennedy administration, will be one of the backdrops for the elimination sequence of the Food Network show. 

The public is invited to watch the taping, but museum admission is required. For ticket prices, click here http://www.pimaair.org/.

Crews are expected to arrive by 9 a.m. and taping expected to start around 11 a.m. according to Pima Air and Space officials.

For those who have not seen the show before, The Great Food Truck Race follows different groups of people as they travel across the U.S. in food trucks and compete for thousands of dollars. 

This filming puts Tucson and Southern Arizona in the spotlight in front of a national cable TV audience. Museum officials hope the exposure helps bring in tourism dollars to Southern Arizona.

The Pima Air and Space Museum is located south of Davis-Monthan AFB, on Valencia near I-10.
