Nice shot, but a bit sad to see all those C-5s going to scrap. Are thos F-14s i see in the back ground or F-111s? They look to long for F-111s, but i thought they chewed up all the F-14 so Iran did not get the spare parts..

Those are most certainly F-14s in the upper right hand corner, between the Bones and the C-5s. The 'cat that is farthest to the right looks like this one: http://www.airliners.net/photo/USA---Navy/Grumman-F-14B-Tomcat/1346788/L/

There's a hodge-podge of F-15s and -16s along the bottom rows, and a couple of columns of T-37s (Tweet!) in the upper left corner.

I will probably suffer a "duh!" moment when someone answers this, but I can't ident the a/c (with the red vertical stab) in the column to the left of the uppermost C-5.

I think the aircraft with red tails are T-38s (Talons).

Northrop T-38 trainers. It's hard to believe the B-1 in the bone yard. Although I guess some of them are 30 years old. Hard to believe.

All those aircraft, resting, represent more strike power than the Belgian Air force all together! Sad to say!

And to answer on the "Duh" question ;-) I think those are F-5

The red stab aircraft look like F-5's. he sight of F-14's and B-1Bs always makes me sad. The B-1 is an absolutely beautiful and graceful aircraft.

Red vertical stab a/c are most likely T-38 Talons or but doubtful F5E Tigers. Wow this picture makes me want to go for a walk in this place...

And definitely F-14's at the top right corner, F-111's only have one fin.

Yep - sure enough...a serious "DUH!" moment for me. Definitely T-38s, with a few more down in the lower left-hand corner. I shouldn't have even had to puzzle over it! Thanks to all, for improving my thinking!
