Since mothballed airplanes get discussed here once in a while, I
thought I'd pass along some information about a terrific book on
the subject that I recently discovered (and no, I don't work for
the publisher).

It's called Desert Airliners, written by Graham Robson, and
published by Motorbooks International.  It is about 100 full-color
pages of photos of airliners in storage at all the major sites
in the southwest United States.  There are also detailed histories
of some of the more significant aircraft such as those used in
movies, those damaged by terrorist acts and later repaired, etc.

The book sells for about US $20 and was published in 1994.  The
ISBN number (by which most any bookseller can locate it) is
0-87938-904-4.
