Is Mohave Strictly For Parting Out?

When ever I notice that a large aircraft is ferried to Victorville, Goodyear, etc. it looks as though it could be storage or parting out. When I look at Mohave, it seems most aircraft are parted out. Is that really the case?

Thanks for that.

I thought that was perhaps the meaning. Never heard scrapped referred to as "Parted out" .... strange terminology

That's because they're not the same thing. Parting out means removing all useful items before you scrap the rest of the aircraft; i.e. you take all the valuable parts out.

In the US what we used to call scrap yards for cars are now usually called salvage yards. If you have an older car and need a very model specific part (like a tail light lens) a salvage yard may be the first place you look (after the dealer tells you the price for a new one.)

If you own a car that no longer runs you may do this process yourself, maybe advertising on craigslist, eBay, or other media that parts are available. That is referred to as parting out your car.

I have heard them be called "automobile recyclers" as well. An environmentally green name for a junkyard.

Quite true, but also more specific. At a "salvage yard" and particularly at an "automobile recycler" one would expect to find cars, trucks, and vans and various pieces thereof but nothing else, whereas a "junkyard" in the classical sense might also contain non-functioning major appliances such as refrigerators, stoves, washers, dryers, and pretty much anything else made of metal including but not limited to old bed frames, farm implements, and bits and pieces of HVAC systems of every size, shape, and description.

According to the web site it is used for storage as well as scrapping (their term): http://mojaveairport.com/lease-build/aircraft-storage/

No. A lot of storage at MHV... Probably a majority.

United uses Victorville Ca. and , Goodyear AZ. Some 737's flew to Tupelo MS for parting out and salvage. Yeah Tupelo!

If Victorville and Mojave were chosen for the dry desert air that minimizes corrosion and rot, would Tupelo be the exact opposite?

I would guess that dryness is less important when the only job is parting out, hence why some of those facilities aren't as much in the desert (another example would be Kemble in the UK.) Since the usable parts are going to another airframe or supplier in any case. Don't have specific knowledge on the topic though.

Which is fairly close to Greenville, MS where they do the same thing.

Emphatically yes. Definitely wouldn't store any airliners long term anywhere in Mississippi. Far too much humidity nearly year round.

I believe some aircraft are stored in CHR, yet when I look at a map of France it doesn't seem to be anywhere near France's, let alone Europe's, driest spot. In fact, being less than 300 km from Paris, I would guess it does get quite humid at times.

Which leads me to ask, are aircraft "stored" in CHR really destined for the scrapper, or is humidity less a factor than one might think?



I've got $h*t to do
