This country's largest military aircraft storage centre began in the heady days following the end of World War II. At first only a small desert site holding bombers and transports in reserve for possible future use, it later became more of a salvage and parts recovery operation, and in many cases, a final resting place known as “the boneyard.” In the 1950s and 1960s, with new wars erupting in Korea and Vietnam, certain aircraft stored in this desert centre were once again in demand, and this famed storage and salvage facility in Tucson, Arizona, answered the call.
Numerous photographs taken both from the air and on the ground show the reader vistas of the 4,000 total airplanes stored at this site, while a detailed appendix gives a comprehensive listing of all the aircraft types currently at AMARG (Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group).
Overall, this is a great reference of a lesser known aviation subject, and should hopefully inspire some to try an AMARG model.
