That is cool! Is that open to anyone anytime or is it one of those where you have to pay or can only visit during certain hours?

I could be wrong, but I don't think it's open to the public. There is a cool Air and Space museum that is open to he public just off of the base.

Adjacent to the Boneyard is the Pima Air and Space Museum near Tucson which displays about 80 aircraft at any one time. I've been there twice and think it's worth a visit. Admission today is about $15-$16. Check it out.:yup:

These Garbage Haulers never go to the Boneyard. We just 'Update' them.

This ceremony was right outside of my office.

You can get an add on ticket at the air and space museum that will give you a bus tour of the aircraft boneyard. They started doing that a couple years ago.
