More B-52 Photos, By Request (Plus a Couple Pics of AMARG)

And because, let’s face it, I’m never actually going to get around to putting anything on Flickr.

And because the last set didn’t include any actual photos taken from the boneyard at Davis-Monthan (AMARG — Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group), here are a few. The bus, as mentioned last post, made it tough to get good photos. For me. Maybe DLF got something better.

The above C-130s are in the “could be re-used” wing of the boneyard.

There were a handful of B-1s scattered around also. And for some reason the right side of the bus didn’t seem to get the best visuals. If you ever go there, try and get a left-side window. And start trying to peel off the tint some time before it leaves the parking lot…

And then these poor guys are on the cannibalization side of the street.

But the view from Google’s satellite maps are, IMHO, the most interesting (zoom in and scroll around for best effect).

Enjoy. Or, “have enjoyed”, I guess.

    Woot! I made for an oblique reference in this post!

    Weirdest. Butt. Evar. on that one B-52! Holy cow, and that Google satellite view is incredible! Someone with severe OCD parked all those planes, methinks. Thanks again for sharing this cool stuff.
