The Tucson Bone Yard (Davis Monthan Air Force Base)

If you are ever in the Tucson area, the weekly tours of the bone yard are still given through the Tucson Air Museum, located just south of Davis Monthan Air Force Base.

The precision in the way they are parked is impressive. It is difficult to comprehend the size of the "Bone yard" 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.

Both the museum and the bone yard are very popular attractions in the Arizona desert. It is difficult to comprehend the number of military aircraft in dead storage until you see these photographs!

This is 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.

I saw a documentary film about the Boneyard sometime back, they have all kinds of US military planes and even some decommissioned ICBMs.
