This 60-centimeter natural color image of the "boneyard" at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona, was collected by QuickBird on August 11, 2002. The boneyard serves as a holding place for out-of-rotation airplanes until their fate is decided; the dry, clear climate of Tucson provides an ideal environment for the storage of aircraft, as they can sit indefinitely without rusting. The hard, desert soil also makes for easy towing of the planes without the need for roads.
