Plane Cemetery In The Desert


About a month ago I wrote a post about a designer company creating fantastic furniture pieces of plane parts they collect in plane cemeteries. But what are these exactly?

Well, it’s pretty much the same as with cars. Once a car becomes totally useless you take them to salvage yards, where you can take them apart and buy some parts if you can use them for anything.  Otherwise they rest in peace in these graveyards for decades.

How many plane cemeteries are there on the planet? Well, who knows? But it’s not just one or two. There must be millions of plane both military and jets around in deserted areas. Some of them are in the US, some in the Middle-East, but they can be located practically anywhere.

Today I found this blogpost with a nice story and even much nicer photos of a plane junkyard in the Mojave desert, California.

Take a look at them and if you like them, here is another album on Flickr with a bunch of other beautiful photos – even if the subject of the pictures is rather sad.
