The precision in the way they're parked is impressive. It is difficult to comprehend the size of the 'Boneyard' and the number of aircraft stored there. Of course the important thing to remember is that they are all capable of being returned to flying condition if the need ever arises.

Weekly tours of the Boneyard are still given through the Tucson Air Museum, located just south of Davis Monthan AFB.
