The Boneyard - biggest aviation graveyard in the world kind of surreal
It also mentions Australia several times, so it made me think of these boards. Anyway, here it is:

It seemed really, really surreal to have all of these "ghost planes" sitting out in the middle of nowhere.
Interestingly, this is where Australia gets some of the aircraft for it's air force from.

Wow! I envy you! Being able to walk up and sit in some of these planes... that just sounds amazing. Not something I imagine many people have done.

Whole airplanes, junked airplanes, wrecked airplanes.
Airplane engines, severed cockpits, and hull skeletons that look like what you'd find after a crash landing.
Craaazy stuff, just lying in the middle of nowhere.

I made one once. It had paper wings to generate lift and my arm to generate thrust! It was amazing.
As I recall, the USA's official military goal was to have a workable plan to defeat the combined arms of the entire rest of the world. Looking at those airfields makes it seem somewhat plausible.

Unless it was spaceships, then I would find it surreal, but that's because I don't live in an age where such things are commonplace ^^

hahaha awesome. If I put all the paper airplanes I ever made in a graveyard, there'd be 1000's of them!
On a related note - my garage kinda looks like this at the moment. I started building a bunch of planes and rockets towards the end of the summer but didn't have time to finish them before it got too cold to work out there. All the parts and things are all taped over and sitting on the workbench.
I guess this would be the Davis-Monton airforce base for a lego guy?
