50 Aircraft Boneyards: Where Planes Go After Use
Kingman Airport was built when World War II started. The base is located in Mohave County which was an ideal location due to the low population and the open grounds. As with many bases, after the war, it served as a storage location for aircraft deemed as surplus. It is estimated that from 1945 to 1946 about 5,500 aircraft were flown to the base. Today, the Kingman Airport is home to dozens of airliners. The aircraft are behind fences and can only be seen.
