I was at Mojave late last year and for $10, the fuel truck driver would give you a tour around the storage areas. We flew in in a private plane so I don't know if this is open to drive-up customers. Perhaps most interesting was an ex-America West 747 that had been stripped and up on blocks when a windstorm sent it on a final flight. Only a few feet but enough to take it off the blocks and send it crashing to the ground. Sad really. Also, many of the ex-PSA Bae146's were there and showing signs of fuel corrosion under the wings. -- -- Larry Stone --- firstname.lastname@example.org Belmont, CA, USA My opinions, not United's.
