How much they have eased our lives. Great picture.
This is the airplane boneyard in Mojave, California. I make a point of stopping there on my trips out to the desert.
Note that this was taken in the same location and (approximate) time as last week’s Wordless Wednesday featuring the shadow image.
These are discards? They look good from a distance but I image there is a good reason for them to be scrapped.
I’ve always wanted to visit this place. Are you able to get close to the planes?
They still look ok to me. Great capture!
I played too. Mine are here and here.
that is so weird..and interesting. you think the meta lwould be worth enough to break them down.
Guess planes have to be scrapped too. You would think that some of the parts could be used for something. But maybe they have done that. It would make a good house for some homeless kitties. LOL.
Cool place. Kind of sad they are scrapped. Probably a lot of history in those planes.
I had no idea there was such a place. Makes you wonder about their history and where they’ve been.
Fascinating. «Louis», with his interest in old cars, finds auto junkyards fascinating, too.
Here’s «Louis’» WW post. He hadn’t posted it when you stopped by and saw the Plymouth XNR. Next Tuesday, «Louis» is planning to post one of his designs for Packard.
They look like huge birds ready to fly !
Awesome!!! I have always wanted to visit after watching a very cool documentary on this place.
nice parking lot!
Cool! Who knew there was such a thing as an airplane graveyard!
Very cool. The boneyard is one of those places I’ve always wanted to see. Sigh. Someday…
This is quite interesting, hadn’t thought about where the airplanes go when they can no longer fly.
Happy Blogoversary to CatSynth!!
The planes just stay there? They aren’t used for scrap metal, or parts of them taken and used elsewhere? Our human must Google now….
BTW, we came to say happy blogoversary (Thursday)!
