 Overview
 Description
U.S. Air Force's Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center, affectionately known as the "Boneyard." Several square miles of desert, with rows upon rows of thousands of mothballed military aircraft of all types stretching as far as the eye can see.

DISCLAIMER: This is an ACTIVE MILITARY INSTALLATION, and is VERY WELL SECURED. Numerous opportunities exist for viewing and photographing it from outside the fence, and a bus tour is available from Pima Air & Space Museum. It is also allowable to overfly the facility in a light civilian aircraft, provided all federal aviation regulations are followed (and you avoid the A-10s flying in and out of D-M). There is no safe or practical, not to mention legal, method to explore this site any other way. If you try to climb the fence, you WILL get busted and sent to federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison.

     Interesting Features
    Thousands upon thousands of mothballed aircraft, in various stages of storage and regeneration. The USAF has more planes here than most other air forces of the world have aircraft, period. The site is a highly restricted area, but Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson offers a guided bus tour of a part of the complex. Short of working at the facility, the bus tour is the only legal and practical way to visit the site.

     History
    The Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center (AMARC), affectionately known as the "Boneyard", is the final resting place for retired military aircraft. Established after WWII, it is located adjacent to Davis Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona. Currently responsible for over 4400 aircraft, originally valued at over $27 billion. Takes in approximately 400 aircraft a year for processing; some are mothballed, others are converted into drones; others are cannibalized for parts to maintain still-flying aircraft, and others still are sold to foreign governments. The exceptionally dry climate in southern Arizona makes this environment especially suitable for long-term storage of aircraft.

    Nearby Pinal Air Park just up the road has a similar boneyard that offers the same service for civilian aircraft.

     Future Plans
    The AMARC will continue to store, maintain, and regenerate aircraft indefinitely.
