I will be in Southern California from Jan 7 thru Jan 15. Is there a possiblity to take a drive through/tour through Victorville to see some old planes. I particularly would like to see the Delta Tristars.

of course. The city of Victorville can be accessed by the Interstate 15. It will be a bit of a drive though, depending on where you will be staying in SoCal.

I will be spending time between LA, San Diego, Palm Desert, and Palm Springs so it shouldn't be too far.
Thanks.

its not too bad of a drive...you should check out HDPP (High Desert Power Project) at the same time, they're right next to each other.

Is Victorville considered an airport or a storage facility? How can I get access into the property?

Most all aircraft storage facilities are Restriced Access. Some, but very very few offer guided tours, but even then in most cases you are not allowed off the van.

Try a search for more information. There have been several threads on this subject with some good information.
