One Last Look At The Boneyard

Last year I was fortunate enough to get access and photograph the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG) on Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, also known as The Boneyard. While I was there on an assignment I did manage to squeeze out a little time to make some pictures for my ongoing Cold War Project.









The Boneyard

And now part two of my Davis-Monthan post, the Boneyard, actually known as the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG). Its the main storage facility for all U.S. and some foreign military aircraft. The aircraft in the AMARG range from those being stored temporarily to ones being prepared for scrapping. I’ve been trying to for years to get access and thanks to an assignment from Politico it finally happened. I shot both film and digital. Whats in this post is from the digital batch. Once I get through my scanning backlog i’ll be posting some of those as well.

Oh Yeah, You’re Supposed To Put Pictures On A Photo Blog- Davis-Monthan Style

Needless to say the last few months have been a bit busy. Hence my complete disregard for the ol’ blog. With things slowing down a bit I can finally catch back up.

Back in August I got to take a little trip out to Tucson on behalf of Politico to photograph at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, home of the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group as well an active base chock full of A-10 Thunderbolt’s. Also known as the Boneyard. I shot both the active base and the boneyard itself. For the first post back, here’s some pictures from the active part of the base.
