Breathtaking Airplane Boneyard

I'm speechless.

We just flew over 'the boneyard'

Old planes as far as the eye could see.

I looked for the old naval blimp gondola stored there, but didn't see
it. Maybe I'll spot it later when I review the pics.

Wow - looks like Saturday night at Paradise Lost in Watford. UK. Lots of knackered old birds, all dried up with bits falling off

By zeppelin is probably the best way to see that place that I can think of. Most of the birds in this shot are pretty old, but the row on the left side are B-1 Lancers, and those aren't that old! They are probably supplying parts to the B-1's that are still flying.

Do you have a larger version of that image? There's something very cool about the shadow of the revived Zeppelin falling across a heavier-than-air boneyard.
