I just got back from running a few guys to Nogales, Az, and here are a few sweet pics I took of the aircraft graveyard in Tucson.

B-52's, C-5's, B-1's F-14's, F-111's, etc.

Enjoy!

Those are awesome pictures.

To capture the massive, worthless piss-away of billions upon billions of tax payer dollars in a few succinct shots is fantastic.

Wide open, even above the AFB. You need to be talking to approach while you are lower, though.

I recommend that you don't try this over KXTA, BTW.

Why is that funny? You do realize that these aircraft actually flew, right? They didn't go from the the factory to the boneyard.

Crazy. Think of all that scrap material just sitting around.
They probably have to have roving guards just to keep the meth heads out.

I know they flew.

I also know that they didn't do jack shit in terms of anything other than costing US taxpayers a millionkazillionjillion dollars and flying around.

The funny part was the "they kept the Soviets from dominating the world" comment.

You think serving in every war in the 20th century is "jack shit"?

I wonder if they'd sell me a B-52 to use as a cabin out in the woods. That'd be the best guy clubhouse ever.

I drive thru the bone yard every day to/from work, it is freaking huge, miles upon miles o' aircraft. I've always wanted to jump the fence and have a closer look, but better judgement and fear of federal prosecution has prevailed so far.....so far hehe.
If you're ever in Tucson, and are into aircraft, you should have a look, and visit the Pima Air and Space Museum while you're at it, you won't be disappointed.

Well if you're bored contact the NACC "Nellis Control' on 119.35 or try Range "BlackJack' on 139.75 if you're trying to skirt the Box (R4808N) near the Lee sector. Or if you're really feeling froggy just fly straight in and see how it goes.
For the DM boneyard, traffic permitting you can get frequently get a low altitude clearance to delay around the Boneyard and helos may be given air taxi permission but I'd recommend contacting the 309th AMARG prior as they own the boneyard.
"NEVADA TEST AND TRAINING RANGE (NTTR) COMPLEX - Airspace composed of the Desert MOA, with overlying Air Traffic Control Assigned Airspace (ATCAA), Reveille North and South MOA and ATCAA, Restricted Areas R-4806 East/West, R-4809, and R-4807A/B. The Desert MOA is subdivided into Sally Corridor, Elgin, Caliente, and Coyote training areas. Restricted Areas R-4806 East/West, R-4809 and R-4807 A/B are joint use airspace and subdivided as follows: AlamoA, B, & C, Areas 61, 62B & C, 63, 64A, B, C, & D, 65N, 65S, 71N, 71S, 74A, 74B, 74C, 75E, 75W,76, 76A, Tolicha, Pahute A & B, ECE, ECW, ECS and Cactus EC. R-4808N and portions of R-4808S are non-joint use restricted areas under control of DOE."

Those billions of dollars helped keep America on top, i'll never apologize for wanting us to remain the #1 power in the world... because if it isnt us, then who? and how will they use that power?

An extremely well funded military is the only way to assure this country never plays second fiddle to anyone.

You mentioned KXTA. I provided the contact info in case you wanted to try to fly into R4808N. My mistake.
