A number of years ago, the Air Force stored a lot of aircraft at Davis Monthan Air Force Base near Tucson. I was stationed there for four months upgrading to the F-4. I remember mostly post WWII aircraft - B-47s, B-57s, maybe B-58, F-84, F-86 types. By now I would guess that some of those F-4s I used to fly are probably there in storage, too. I don't remember that the area was open to the public, but the impressive numbers of aircraft were visible from the public roads around the perimeter of the base. I am not aware of a comparable storage area for civil aircraft.
