The World's Largest Fighter Graveyard Belongs to the United States

INDONEWTRAVEL.COM - On the reddish ground, thousands of planes that were not used were lined up very neatly.

As quoted from the Independent page, the plane's grave is actually named Davis-Monthan Air Base, located in the Arizona desert, Tucson.

The air base, also dubbed The Boneyard, is home to more than 4,400 aircraft, ranging from oversized cargo planes to bombers, Hercules cargo, A10 Thunderbolts and Top Gun's famous F-14 Tomcat.

The unused fighter aircraft will be treated by the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group 309 (AMARG).

They are tasked with inspecting, overhauling or dismantling aircraft parts, so that they can be used for aircraft that are still active.

Some of the planes lacked wings and noses, having been dismantled.

Occupying a land area of ​​2,600 hectares, The Boneyard has been used to store fighter aircraft since 1946, after the end of World War II.

The plane's grave in the Tucson region was chosen because of its low rainfall, high altitude and harsh alkaline soil.

The graves are often the setting for filming movies, television shows or music videos, one of which is Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
