Is there a technical reason why so many (41 to be precise) BAe Jetstreams
are now parked in the desert at Kingman, AZ or is the type being replaced
with more fuel efficent technology/higher seating capacity?

Since they are from various airlines (TW Express, United Express, American
Eagle, Reno Air Express, Sierra Expressway, US Air Express, Dolphin
Airlines) I can't attribute the gathering to the failure of one particular
airline!
