Is There Any Way To Get A Tour Of Victorville?

Sat Jul 14, 2001 4:51 am

as a lot of us know, Mojave is great for photography. and you can get a tour for about $10 a head. so...

what about Victorville? its bigger, and has more to shoot. but i keep hearing its not worth the trip cause you cant get anywhere near the planes. ive seen some up close shots on a.net. but shots at VCV are scarce. is there ANY way to get out there...leagally?  Big grin

thanks!

I bet you could probably contact the Southern California Logistics Airport in Victorville (area code 909) and get someone to answer your questions.

My job has had me working charter flights as part of military movement in and out of VCV. I doubt under any circumstances you could get close to the planes....but you could probably photograph. Then again, you'd have to be really hard up for a good time to find any fun there.

The difference between MHV and VCV is that while the former is primarily a graveyard, the latter serves as an active storage facility for aircraft temporarily out of service. As a result, there is more reason to control access to these aircraft than at MHV. That said, I'd be interested to see what info you can get on VCV tours.
