Would have loved to see those planes in the skying wondering the earth with its other sisters and brothers and service! Hope to see them joining their fleet.

The DC-10 on the taxiway looks fresh. but soon she will come to an end. :( I'll take 5 units of DC-9 and another 5 for options please. :)

Very sad to see all these once proud jetliners stored, facing an uncertain future. I hope these aircraft will find new owners and return to the sky, where they belong.

The Northwest corner... even tho it might actually be the Southeast one of this jet park.

Yeah that DC-10 looks indeed like it could take to the skies again at any time! And by the way, guys don't be too enthusiastic, the Gimli Glider (reg. C-GAUN and not C-GUAN) was stored at Mojave and not in Marana. This one here is C-GAUE, a very old yet not so famous 767 :)

Not really an airport where you want your airline to be the biggest...

Sad scene... the picture was taken around the DL/NW takeover, as many Northwest birds were being put down after the company has merged with Delta.
p.s. - the "Gimli Glider" was registered C-GAUN, so the white B762 on the bottom left could be him! (I can clearly read "C-GAU", but not sure if the last letter's an "N"!)

As you can tell from the picture, and previous comments, it's C-GAUE. The Gimli Glider is at Mojave

Looks like the DC-10 just arrives to visit the cemetery, pondering its own future.

Like the previous posters, I sure do miss seeing the red NW birds at the airports when traveling. This pic is from '07 so it's a safe bet most of these golden era jets are scrapped? Last DC-10 I ever flew on was a NW -40 series to SEA via MSP around June 2002. Good memories.
