060131 - DESERT BONEYARDS: Retired Aircraft Storage Facilities in the US

By Patrick Hoeveler and Adel Kramer

The “Desert Boneyards” are a concept well known to every aeronautical enthusiast, and yet also veiled in secrecy. Gigantic desert aerodromes in which military and civilian aircraft from all over the world are stored, either permanently or for a time, in order to serve as sources of spare parts or to be reactivated after a certain time. In this unique photo documentation, the reader is shown the best-known of these “desert boneyards” in Arizona and California and presented fascinating insights into a world far away from the well-known airports.
