While on my way to the annual Kenpo karate World Championships, which were to be held in Long Beach California in 2014, I visited some aviation highlights in California, Arizona and Nevada. One of those destinations was Davis Monthan Air Force base, wich is home to the Aircraft Maintanance And Regeneration Group (AMARG) commonly known as “The Boneyard”.
At AMARG some 4000 retired aircraft reside in the Arizona desert, waiting for their fate. Some return to service with the US armed forces or some alied military force, some serve as spare parts provider and others just get scrapped when their time has come.
Also there is the Pima Air and Space Museum, where some 230 aircraft that have mostly come from AMARG are preserved.
Below are my pictures from this awesome place, which were taken from outside the fence, inside the museum and from the bus during the tour of the facility.
