My neighbor and I returned to the Pima Air Museum to take the tour of the 309th AMARG otherwise known as “The Bone yard” at Davis Monthan AFB in Tucson. The tour took a little over an hour and covered about a third of the place. There are approx. 42oo aircraft stored there and about half are in either flying condition or can be made that way quickly.

This Admiral’s plane kind of looks like a presidential aircraft but isn’t
One of many F-4 Phantom jets awaiting conversion to target drones
Lots of KC-135 stratotankers awaiting disposition. My son flew in these and wanted me to photo tail numbers.
