I was looking around and noticed a lot of A-10's. Jumped on Wikipedia and sure enough, it's their home base for training on the A-10.

I see stuff as new as the B-1 and the F-16 but what is the oldest thing you can spot?

They primarily serve as a parts depot for the planes in service.
Most of the newer ones are kept in one piece in case we need the whole thing operational.

Why not keep 'em ?

There is an under ground storage that you can not see that has aircraft from WW2. But, just driving around the base you can see stuff from Korea Era that hasn't been torn apart yet. Atleast there was last time I paid attention out there.

I remember seeing a photo of a similar boneyard right after WWII. B-17's, B-24 & 25's, F4U's,Hellcats, P-38 & 51's all sitting in rows with the engines removed waiting for scrap or sale.
What I would give to go back with a few thousand bucks and a 50 year lease on some property

Too bad most all got turned into stoves and beer cans.

Cool link-Thanks
