there used to be quite a few aircraft stored on the perimeter
of McCarran Intl Airport............was out there this weekend
and saw only 2 :

747SP - all white - ex Mandarin Airlines - N4522V

and

737-222 - no engines - ex United - N9016U

and of course the usual "gaggle" of 732's that shuttle people to/from AREA 51
saw around 4 or 5 parked together

you'd think there would be more due to all of the recent early retirements,
marana and mojave must be reaching their storage space limits

think more will come to Vegas ?
