The Bone Yard-from the inbox


The Bone Yard near Davis Monthan Air Force Base - 
Tucson, Arizona USA
 

Remember - Each one of these babies 
Had a multi-million dollar price tag! 


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's 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 service if the need ever arises. 
"Those who beat their swords into plowshares will plow for those who did not."
(Thomas Jefferson)


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 AFB. 


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! 



Even if you have seen this before, look again.
 

The 3rd largest Air Force in the world
Is sitting on the ground here.
