Few people know that when Southwest deferred the deliveries of their new -700's Boeing parked them in the desert for a few months. This whole row is Southwest -700's in storage. The ship you see near the American 727´s was a movie set used in Water World.

I am always amazed wondering if the ship is real or a mock up as its a long way from water. its the ship used in waterworld.

Why put planes in storage when you can store it in the airport?

Great shot of a depressing scene. To the previous poster, it is very expensive to use airport parking spots, so for long term parking it makes economical sense to use these desert sites.
