    looks like a quilt


    Fascinating. We are throwing out 20-year old state of the art aircraft, and third world countries are finally advancing beyond prop jobs.


    A lot of that has to do with the massive cost of maintenance (which can exceed the vehicles production cost EVERY YEAR). We don’t sell them to anyone anymore because that has bitten us in the butt a number of times (see also: Iran’s airforce), so once we are done using them in combat and/or training, they end up here.

    As for the third world just catching up with our 50 year old tech–have you seen what proportion of our economy is spent on defense as opposed to the nearest competitor? There is a reason why no one else forks over enough to have what we take for granted.

    How hard would it be to steal something?


    Pretty hard. You’d need some super-baggy pants to slip a jet out of there.

    I have an image of B-52`s lined up at AMARC on my wall.There`s something really forlorn about it.


    If you’re into planes, you can spend hours looking at this place in Google Earth. It’s really fun (sad) picking out individual plane types.


    Isn’t this just across the way from Pima Air Museum? Pretty sure we drove past this when I was in Tucson.


    Some enterprising prankster should re-park all of them to spell out “AREA 51 THIS WAY —>”
