I was recently in Tucson Arizona, and saw two major aircraft storage facilities: 1) Pima(?) facility at Marana is NW of Tucson, and is visible in the distance from Interstate 10. My parents tried to get in once, and were turned away at the gate. 2) Davis-Monthan AFB has a great number of aircraft stored, and publicly accessable roads running by and through the base allow you to see many of these aircraft. At one point I saw around 20 F-14s, 30 F-15s, and (it seemed like) over 500 F-4s in storage (I also saw F-4s flying around D-M). At another point you can see the "boneyard"; I recognized parts of numerous DC-6s and B-57s, and (for some strange reason) a bunch of city buses. While you're in Tucson, be sure to check out some other interesting stuff: 1) Arizona Air Guard operates F-16s out of Tucson International (looked to be 50-55 aircraft); they were running quite active operations one Wednesday morning when I was waiting to fly out. 2) Pima Air Museum, near D-M AFB, has the best collection I've seen, other than the Air Force Museum at Dayton. They have an especially good collection of large transports.
