A recent Google Earth photos of high resolution have been shared which shows an are4a of some 2,600 acres in the hot Arizona desert where several generations of US military aircraft are parket. The aircraft include mighty Starfortresses, the nuclear capable aircraft, the F-14 Tomcat fighters that were the mainstay of US Air Force during the Vietnam war.
Why keep these aircraft there afterall? Well it is the humidity free enviornment that keeps the airframes from rusting. While some aircraft die and fade away, the engines, munitions, wiring and electronics of some of the aircraft are recycled to help lower the cost of maintaining the current-day fleet.
The U.S. government even allows the military in other countries to buy parts and even planes from the site.
