Check out these pictures of airplanes. LOTS of airplanes.

Click on up in the upper right corner, then zoom in to the max and start panning around. There are planes, parts of planes, plane kits, accessories, and everything you'd need to build a plane all around that address.

An amazing amount of tax $$ just sitting there in the desert sun.

These pictures are NOT anything like real time. I know that some of them are a couple of years old and the photo-mosaic is made up from several different sets of photos. The "real-bad-guys" can get newer and more detailed pics any time they want. These are just entertainment.

Isn't that the boneyard at Litchfield Park?

Some of those aircraft look "pickled"; live storage with something called SprayPlat ( or something like that) protecting the finish, ready to be reactivated at short notice.

Davis-Monthan AFB in AZ is the official graveyard where old planes go to die or be surplused off. But the government maintains several other storage areas in the desert, both for junkers and "excess to needs" aircraft that are still serviceable. I'll bet this is one of those.

This one is a Davis Monthan in Tucson. If you scroll about 3 frames diagonally to the south-west (max zoomed-in), you can see the Pima Air and Space Museum. (or you could just search for it at 5944 E Valencia Rd, Tucson, AZ)

Can you find a FLYING airplane in a map photo?
I found a photo of a FLYing airplane in one of these photos. I'm wondering if there are others.

Check out the field at the right of the photo (click satellite and zoom in to the max) This guy is on approach to Hillsboro airport about four frames north and west.

I was told once that a certain number of them are kept "ready" incase ever needed. I think its a 72 hour turn to get them airborne.

Steve,

As best as I can find, the Litchfield Park bone yard to which you referred is at the Goodyear airport. It looks to be all civilian airliners.

There's another one like it at Mojave., CA.

Some how I find it really depressing seeing all those planes just sitting there. Although I'd be tons of fun to go through the military one and look around.

That is absolutely amazing,

It's a pity that Ireland and most of Europe is not covered any any detail, I can't find my house.

I was in Chicago once so I did a search for the hotel I was staying in, found it first time.

Amazing stuff. I wonder what the "Modern Military" standard is like ??

No where is area 51 or whatever it is called

Awesome

I've been to Davis Monthan. There are F-16's A-10's for miles, wrapped in a white protective barrier. We picked up a UH-3H and packed it into a C-5 and flew to a rework facility and in no time she was as good as the day it rolled out of the Sikorsky Plant. It's amazing how many aircraft are there.

I don't know how to get more resolution than there IS at max, but you CAN make the pixels larger. (the easiest way is to just decrease the resolution of your screen. e.g. go from 1280x1024 to 800x600 to view these pictures).

If you want to capture the pictures, you need to either do a screen capture or copy the picture-tiles out of your browser cache. Screen capture is pretty straight forward.

If you want to capture the tiles out of your cache you just go copy all the "most recent" entries in the cache into a convenient place. (I usually wait 5-10 minutes with no input to the browser, then click zoom once. That way the tiles all have the same time-code and are easy to spot.) Then you rename all the files you just copied and add the suffix ".jpg" to each. You can now open them with your favorite picture viewer or editor. (some of the files won't open, because they weren't pictures to begin with.) Finally, you stitch the tiles you want back together to make the image you want. Now you can zoom-in as much as you want. (the pictures get pretty hard to see at much more than 200%)
