Airplane Graveyard

This past weekend we've been near Tucson, AZ covering the Accenture Match-Play Championship. On our way into town the other day we flew over an airplane graveyard located at an airport called Pinal Airport. As you can see in the videos and pictures, there are a ton of airliners there. I think I counted 30 747's alone plus dozens of 737's, DC-10's, DC-8's and regional jets from all over the world. Really a neat perspective to check out the airplanes from. Some of them looked like they were getting scrapped for parts and scrap metal but I imagine some of them may just be there for storage.
