    once an aircraft part is "time ex'd"or has reached the end of its safe usable life, no matter if its still working it has to be scrapped,all those planes are only woth their weight in scrap...nothing else...but because of terrorists and the nature of those being war planes the military will hold on to those until they corrode back into dust rather then have them fall into "enemy" hands even if they are completely obsolete. sorry if i sound like a know-it-all but i had to learn all this shit when i took my aircraft maintenance course, right before my automotive maintenance course in college
    Well, excuse me, for having ENORMOUS flaws, that i don't work on !

    I'm pretty sure I saw a chunk of C-5 Galaxy's, a pile of what looks to be C-130's, a SHITLOAD of F4 Phantoms, enough A-10's to make me cry , and a pile of F15's.

    About the only other thing I recognize is a ton of Tornados.

    I was reading the aerospace forum on Vortex. Apparently they just buried a TON of F-117 Nighthawks since the F-22 Raptor pretty much rendered them useless.

    If only Canada would have 1/10th of what's parked in that lot we'd have a better air force.

    I remember about 10 years ago when we had a dozen or so F-18's (in total across Canada) and we crashed more than half of them in "training".

    It's sorta embarrassing how much we rely on the USA for air support.

    They had a C5 galaxy at the Trenton air show many years ago. They opened the nose and tail sections and let everyone walk through it. Huge inside.

    im sure some of these will return to service.
    alot of them are "furloughed" or just out of service temporarily, either for heavy maintenance, or because of a lack of need, while others such as the f 14, are retired, and will sit and rot.

    Nah man Helicopters are where its at. Sure a jet is more fun but helicopters require 3948394x more skill to fly and even more to fly in combat.

    Some cool photography here.

    Mostly commercial stuff, but neat nonetheless. Good planning put into the lighting.
