The Bone Yard

For those of you that have never seen this,
it is something to see.

The precision in the way they are parked is impressive.
It is difficult to comprehend the size of the "Boneyard"
and the number of aircraft stored there.
Of course the important thing to remember is
that they are all capable of being returned to flying
condition; if the need ever arises.
The weekly tours of the
boneyard are still given through the Tucson Air Museum,
located just south of Davis Monthan AFB.
Both the museum and the boneyard are very popular attractions
in the Arizona desert.
The 3rd largest Air Force in the world is sitting on the ground here.
It's the only unit in the U.S. Air Force that actually makes a profit.

That is super impressive. I'm going to have to make a trip there some day and take that tour. Maybe I can get hooked up with one of those F-14s. Not a bad mode of transportaion, plus it seats just as many as my CRX :D

Neil,

Did you go there? I've driven past it. I was soooo tempted to sneak in and look around. Man, I wish they would let you! Or give tours.
Close by is the Pima County air museum. YOU MUST SEE THIS PLACE IF YOU LIKE AIRCRAFT! They have many foriegn as well as US panes. The old Airforce One is there.

Even with that picture it's hard to fathom how vast that place is.
Those big ones are B52's. They're almost twice the size of a 747. I've seen one once in my life, and you can seriously build a go-kart track inside one, and they're stacked 16 side by side and 3 rows thick.

I'm working on a 1280 resolution, and I can't fit this in my screen before I can't make out what it is anymore.

Oh and your keys are in your left side pocket.

wow, that place looks amazing.

B52s are amazingly huge, When I was little we lived under the flight path from Grifiss AFB.
