The Boneyard.

The Tucson Bone Yard is officially named the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center (AMARC), Davis-Monthan AFB, Tucson, Arizona

All of the aircraft stored there are capable of being returned to flying condition if the need ever arises.

Weekly tours of the Boneyard are still given through the Tucson Air Museum, located just south of Davis Monthan AFB.

The aircraft stored at the boneyard are so numerous that they are, in effect, the third largest Air Force in the world. It's the only component of the U.S. Air Force that actually makes a profit (from supplying spare parts).
