I am not sure if this is a pure military aviation topic, but couldn't find a better place to post...
I saw this beutiful picture of a B-36J in storage the other day:

It look in great shape which could make it a great candidate for aviation museum display. Yet, it is baking under the sun at Davis-Monthan AFB in storage.
Now, two questions come to mind:
1. Why keep this bird in storage and not give her a new home so people would view her?
2. Since other vintage aircraft are all around, what are the US Air Force policy on keeping its old and obsolete birds? do they think they will make any use in the future?
