Wow ... been a while since I've been to AMEN. Geez that retail precinct is huge and takes up a fair chunck of airport

There looks like there's a big void on the northern side of the runway ... just asking for development

Sorry Dr but the Vtail in the pic IS actually in a museum. Some may argue that it belongs there....

Did anyone else think it was at least a little bit ironic having "reaching for god" written on the side of that BD5 or am I being too harsh on Jim Bede?

There is nothing wrong with ANY of the aircraft in the boneyard, other than they are old models or surplus to requirements. It is a terrible waste of aircraft. There was around 80 acres of C130's there too, not required as they now use the J series.

No you can't buy any, unless you are some kind of organization.

OK then.........
Wot's wrong with all those F-111's sitting there in the desert??

Oh, they're for the URGENT NTAMS cases - faster than the speed of sound,
faster than a speeding bullet - more powerful than a locomotive....

'Tis a shame all the same.

Would they really miss just 1 l'il ole Bo or Mentor..??
