Davis-Monthan Air Force Base “Boneyard” Photos

F-14s mothballed at Davis-Monthan AFB

Back in 2001, I had the opportunity to visit Davis-Monthan Air Force Base for a work trip. Better known as the “Boneyard,” Davis-Monthan is where thousands of U.S. military aircraft are mothballed, destroyed, and/or stored in the Arizona desert. It’s a very cool place, with aircraft dating back from the forties to almost the latest generation aircraft, and because I was there for work, I had the run of the place. Too bad my work colleagues weren’t as excited as I was to explore, so I didn’t get nearly as many photos as I would have liked. 🙁 I believe public tours are available, and the nearby Pima Air And Space Museum has hundreds of restored aircraft on display, but the Boneyard is way more impressive.

To see the pictures I took, check out my Davis-Monthan Boneyard photo gallery or visit the flickr photo set. The picture above is a very sad sight for me, especially considering that almost all F-14s are now decommissioned…
