Hello fellow nutters I hope you are all well. I have been wanting to ask this for a long time and think that I will finally be able to put together a trip for this. I want to visit those airliner graveyards they have, where they park the planes in the USA. Can you guys help me understand what city and state these are in, and how do i get there? What are the tricks to getting in and all, any information would be amazing! Thank you very much!

I recently visited the graveyard at Mojave. It is an airport open to the public, but you can't go out onto the field. You can park next to a Convair 880 and walk up close to it. When I was there, there was an Orbital L-1011 right up by the fence, which they were preparing for flight. You can get a better view of the planes if you go to the north side of the field. You have to take a dirt road from the main road and you can walk right up to the fence and get a pretty good view. I've also been to the one in Victorville, but it is a little harder to find. You can drive around to the back of it on a dirt road and get pretty close to some Delta L-1011s.

"Aircraft boneyard" on wikipedia is probably a decent place to start.


Fly, you fools! Fly!

Correction to my post above: It is a Convair 990, not an 880.

Mojave not as good as VCV IMO. Apart from anything else they have No photography signs on all the fences with views. VCV was easy to rattle off a few from the fence.
