Rows of fighter aircraft

Rows of fighter aircraft preserved inside the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regenerations Group's "Boneyard" at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz. The Arizona desert is a natural selection to house for the Air Force's only aircraft "boneyard" due to the lack of rust and metal deterioration with the lack of humidity in the desert.
