The 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group—the Boneyard [VIDEO]

Many U.S. military aircraft go to the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group once they reach the end of their service life. The 309th is stationed at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona, with the retired aircraft and grounds the 309th controls being commonly known as the Boneyard. It’s an interesting place full of spectacular views.

The Boneyard “contains about 5,000 retired military aircraft throughout 2,600 acres.” The Department of Defense uses the retired aircraft for parts and, occasionally, it calls them back into service.

SCI posted about the Boneyard on Jan. 29, 2017. It included a fascinating video clip of the Boneyard. But there is more to see than just that.

Below is another video of the Boneyard that the Air Force published in 2017.
