Here’s a scrapbook of fighters… from the 1960s through the turn of this century… that were or are still in storage at the U. S. Air Force Material Command’s giant storage lot in Tucson, Arizona. Sometimes called the “Boneyard”, the 390th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG) adjacent to the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base is a storied place where some aircraft end their final flights, while others are rejuvenated and fly again at a later date.

Here are many examples of “Century Series” fighters, and others that served after the Vietnam War ended in the early 1970s. Watch here for more features which contain transports, trainers, bombers and other specialty aircraft in storage over the coming months.
