The Boneyard, Arizona

Old fighter jets never die; they just go to the Boneyard. This dirt lot near Tucson is the final resting place for roughly 3,000 retired military aircraft. While some can take to the skies with little more than a spit and polish, others—some up to 60 years old—are gradually being harvested for spare parts.

See It: Check out fighters galore and mighty B-52 bombers on an hour-long tour of the Boneyard, organized through the Pima Air & Space Museum. Reserve your spot as early as possible—it sells out weeks in advance.
