The latest desert aircraft parking scene. Victorville is the hot place to go. There are far more A/C than this photo frame can cover, a lot of familiar 747 (cargo) frame from the Orient now are parked there. [Nikon D300]

Wow, why would delta paint their planes with their new livery and then retire them!, such a sad sceene specially thinking that they are pretty much "new" aircraft 747-400´s, 67, 57. not the usual dc-9 that you would expect in a graveyard!

My guess is that many of these planes are not yet officially retired and could be returned to service relatively quickly with a new owner or better economy. I've seen many of those UA 737's make their last take-off from SFO. Is that an old TWA 767 in the upper left & an AAL A300 above Cathay?

An interesting colllection of aircraft. I've always thought that if these aircraft could talk to, oh the stories they could tell of where they've been. An exquisite photo Sam as always coming from you...

First time seeing my nation's airline having a plane in storage. Lots of planes still look airworthy, except the one to the most top left hand corner. I guess it's an A300? Now, it makes me feel like flying one back home!

The 744 in new UAL colors is odd seeing it here. DC-9s don't belong in a graveyard, they belong in the newest NWA colors flying around DTW or MSP.

Check out the DC-8s at the top of the screen. Don't recognize the colors. I almost thought Alitalia but they wouldn't fly those relics. Also, I saw a AA A300-600 in the middle, with the paint removed. It's right above the Cathay Pacific Cargo 744.

Great photo! It's sad now, but come an economic recovery I say 9/10 planes on this picture will be flying again! The 1/10 refering to the DC-8s and 727s. Those 757s, 767s, A300s, MD-80s, and 747s have a fair amount of life left in them, and I see most, if not all of them returning to the skies.

Look on the brightside! You may see hopelessness, but I see opportunity. :D

Nice shot, interesting that the SQ 744F has all the titles and logo removed, almost like they don't plan to operate it again.

Very nice photo. I'd bet most of the 747-400's are waiting on room for a C-Check. What's really odd is seeing the -400 freighter in the desert. The DC-8's are in the Emery paint scheme. Its also sad to see the 743 there too. Not many left. :(

Can I have the Boeing 727 please? haha. such a sad sight, these birds dominated the world's skies before but now they lie and wait for their doom or maybe new owners. I hope every A/C here may fly again.

The NCA 742 seems to have been fitted with 400 wing fairings.
An Oasis in the desert. How ironic.

Talking about that Delta airlines with the new paint scheme tail. Why would you waste money re-painting a plane that is very soon to be retired?

What a great capture? However, this picture does not do the size of these big birds justice. They all look like toys!!!!

Second "desert" photo I see with an Avianca plane. Too bad for the bird now resting but here in the country it means fleet renovation and new planes to fly in.

Very sad to see the 744's. Especially with UAL n/c and SIA 744F. Kinda heart breaking. But look in the bright side guys, their souls will be reborn onto the 748i. Or they will be seeing new operators. Spirit of Manila is ordering 3 744s. :)
