Aircraft Storage Locations On Google Maps

Hi everybody,

I have always been fascinated by the photographs of all those planes in the desert at Davis Monthan and Mojave, but I never had the luck to go there. I was wondering about the size of these storage, so I searched for the satellite maps on Google Maps. Here is what I've found :

Mojave 35.0593647 , -118.1518561
Davis Monthan 32.170000, -110.850000

Type the coordinates at maps.google.com and switch to satellite view.

It was a great surprise for me to see that these facilities are much much smaller than what I expected. Are these the same locations form which we sometimes see photographs on a.net? Does anybody of you know other airplane storage locations that are visible on google maps?

Thanks

Another place to look for where planes are being stored in the desert is Goodyear, Arizona at the Goodyear airport. At one time, just a few years ago, there had to be fifty or more parked there. Take a look.

Wow! That one has a huge storage!!

You are like 2 miles far from the airport and still there are planes all around you!
Judging by the pictures (I searched for it on Google Earth) it seems that Davis Monthan is mainly used for military aircraft storage, while Mojave is used for civil aircraft.

That one is really cool too! It's like a 747 cemetery Silly

Coordinates are: 32°30'24.40'' N, 111°19'43.96 W

Oh, and who does all those red Jumbo's belonged to?

At first I imagined Braniff, but they'd look more orange than red. So I guess is Northwest, but I'm not really sure!

Wow...that one, in the other hand, seems to be a tri-jet cemetery!! candle 

Lots of DC-10s, MD-11s and 727s!!

Coordinates: 33°25'22.01'' N, 112°22'32.83'' W

There's a small plane (twin-engine, I believe) taking off to the west, in the middle of the main runway.


Happy landings,
