Mojave Air And Space Port

November 4, 2011

‘Mojave Air and Space Port is a storage location for commercial airliners at the end of their useful lifetime and scrapped at the Mojave aircraft boneyard.’

After aircraft are put into boneyards, many of them are stripped of useful parts like engines, most electronics, munitions and wiring.

The Mojave Desert is a good location for a boneyard since the dry conditions reduce corrosion.

How we long to wander about there…
