Aircraft parked in the desert Arizona space-plane.
Located just outside the base gates of the Davis-Hudshan Air Force in Tucson Arizona, they are a series of aircraft rescue aircraft. These rescue yards are here to feed the steady flow of a demilitarized aircraft at an auction by the Space Maintenance and Renewal Center at AMARC. AMARC is responsible for the farewell storage of aircraft from the Defense Department surplus Coast Guard aircraft. Anything the government sells, which can cause possible injuries or be used by a hostile government is "erased" before it leaves their control. Demilling, which stands for de-militarising, can include cutting wings, or cut the plane or dismantle the electronic plates and exhaust seats. Because of this demilling process, most planes are useless for flight and they are designed to be pieces of exhibit, broken for parts of a rescue plane or a farewell plane out, or melted to scrap metal.
The dry climate of Tucson and alkaline soil has made it an ideal location for bright aircraft, a role that since since was chosen for World War as a storage location for the hundreds of B-29 and C-47 was eliminated.

Fence prevents you from getting close to C-123 suppliers. C-123s were used to bring millions of gallons of Agent Orange during the Vietnam War to defoliate forests to deny cover in North Vietnam. You can not touch them because of the OSHA rules (Occupational Safety and Health Administration). So they can still be there in fifty years. Perhaps they would have declared a monument to the soldiers and civilians who were hurt by Agent Orange.
