This high-resolution satellite image offered by Customaps, shows a section of the aircraft boneyard at Davis–Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona. With the area's low humidity in the 10%-20% range, meager rainfall of 11" (28 cm) annually, hard alkaline soil, and high altitude of 2,550 feet (777 m) these machines are naturally preserved for cannibalization or can possibly even be reused. This makes Davis-Monthan the logical choice for use as a major storage facility.
The desert's geology also allows aircrafts to be moved around without having to pave the storage areas. This location is to this day the sole aircraft boneyard and parts reclamation facility for all excess military and government planes from the Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, NASA and other government agencies. The facility employs 550 people, almost all of which are civilians and comprises of more than 4,400 machines which makes it the largest entity of this kind in the world.
