Roswell-it is a huge airfield with a wide assortment-somewhat accessible for touring. There are commuter flights into ROW
, but may be costly. Perhaps can go to ABQ
and rent car-about 3hrs either direction. Once you enter Roswell you can see AC
tails-just drove towards them. I spent about an hour driving slowly around the perimiter and then parked and took pix over/through fence. In Spring 2002 were lots of 727's, ATA L10's NW
D10's, Atlas+Polar 747's, Emery DC8's, Arrow/Fine Dc8 + L1011's. I think 200+ large jets in total. Also lots of various L10's, (Rich Intl), and BA
747-100's. I highly recommend.
Also Ardmore, OK
, (just 90 miles S. of OKC
), is where lots of planes were scrapped, however operator Aviation Sales was taken over a couple years ago and don't know if they have any additions or if most of AC
has been totally scrapped.
