The Airplane Boneyard

Old airliners and private planes don't just fly off into the sunset, never to return. Many of them end up in an aircraft boneyard, like the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center (AMARC), at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona. Also called the boneyard, the Center stores, maintains and restores aircraft and parts and is one of the largest facilities of its kind in the world.

Aerial photos of this airplane junkyard show the massive scale of the operation and just how popular airplane restoration and storage is. The Center prepares and repairs planes for clients all over the world, from military operations to private pilots and foreign airlines. This airplane junkyard proves aviation restoration and repair is a booming and very lucrative business!
