Firstly, some of those planes look abandoned and/or are in storage to me. If that is the case, they were probably towed into that position. Secondly, a quick seach of all the photos of VCV shows that this airfield is mostly used for the storage of aircraft which proves my earlier point.
You are said to be a good pilot when your take-off's equal your landings.

Aren't these desert airfields in the US so huge that you can manouver pretty much wherever you want?
Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.
