Good luck with Mojave. Some recent posts have indicated that it is now
increasingly difficult to get access to the stored airliners there.
You might want to write to the airport manager in advance to avoid
disappointment. There are still many airliners stored here, but a lot
are in poor condition not making for very good photos.

The folks at Kingman are much friendlier probably because they get fewer
visitors. On my last visit (Oct 96) there were about 40 Jetstreams, 6
Lone Star Metros, 2 Northwest F-27, 12 Valujets and a single Continental
DC-10. Also based (not stored) are a DC-4 and Fairchild C-123.
