Military Boneyard in Detail, Thanks to Google

Aircraft boneyards like Victorville and Marana are popular with aviation enthusiasts for the commercial aircraft stored there, but the boneyards for military aircraft–B-52s, F-14s–are much less accessible. Until now.

With a hat tip to the BBC, Google Maps now shows the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group boneyard at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tuscon, Arizona. At 2600 acres over four square miles containing over 4000 aircraft, it is reportedly the world’s largest military aircraft boneyard.
