Ooooooh, I guess I let the secret out now!
yeah, those are mine. I made a contact thru someone of the guy who's in charge of the place, and drove down there this week. This guy has been doing scrapping for 27 years and is a pro at it. he treats all the planes like they are his kids. Some people like to show you pics of their grandkids, but this guy has photo albums in his office of planes he's scrapped. He is photographer-friendly however, i dont know how he would react to a flood of requests.
It is not a storage facility. Planes only come in for one reason: to be scrapped. He only has 34 planes now, and I guess he'll rotate them out every few months once they get all the good parts out, then they're busted up. There isn't a tremendous variety - only DC-10s, 727s, and two DC-9s and one 747. No Airbus jets now - but he says he is the only licensed Airbus dismantling facility. They did have an A300 last year. It's not the kind of place you visit frequently because it takes them time to go thru the planes, get rid of them, and get more. Looking at the pics i have, his facility will look the same a month from now.
I took pics of nearly every plane they have, and some "different" pics like engines, cockpits (all but one are stripped out and I'm sure that one will go soon), and a couple cabins. I have individual pics of each of the planes in that lineup picture too. As my caption said, it's the first of a series; I'm going to be uploading all of them so look for them, mixed in with my IAH photos.
Some viewers may be surprised by the fact that many of the planes pictured now partially scrapped were flying (and pics uploaded) as late as last summer, so they are very early in the scrapping process. For example, here is N157US:

I'm quite honored to have the first pics on airliners.net of this facility.
