National Aircraft Inc‎ - Airplane Junk Yard 3
Tucson
National Aircraft Inc‎ is one of the privately-owned "boneyards" near the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona. While not nearly as vast as the real "bone yard" in the air force base, it IS publicly accessible - at least part of it is anyway. The multitude of sharp objects in many of the other places prevent this place from allowing folks to wander completely freely, for insurance reasons I guess. Bob, the friendly guy working there when we arrived, showed us a giant gash of a scar going the length of his forearm as evidence of this. Yes, you do want to be careful wandering around here. It's not really a place for kids (the Pima Air Museum just across the way however certainly is). Oh yes, and you can buy stuff here. Airplane seats, bombs (dead ones I think), propellers, gauges, and any other part that might have come from an airplane that your heart desires. And by the way, this place won't be getting any new parts from the military - the regulations now stipulate that all airplanes that are decommissioned must be cut into 5 inch squares. That's a lot of squares. Address of National Aircraft Inc: 4851 South Kolb Road, Tucson, AZ 85730-4147. Phone: (520) 790-7373‎

    More About USA

    The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
