There are several aircraft storage areas around California, and Arizona. If you had the time and were willing to drive, I'd say to go Pinal, which is also right near Davis Monthan, which is by the Boneyard. Pinal is a huge storage area. There's one not TOO far from Edwards though, in Victorville that has a lot of 747s parked out there, along with a bunch of others. It's probably only 80-90 miles from Edwards.

Used to be George, now it's the Southern California Logistics Airport. Also known as where 747s go to die.

So civilian and no longer air force property now?

Oh and although it's been a dream of mine to visit Davis-Monthan for as long as I can remember,I'm already running out of holiday days so might have to come back next year and do the middle part of America.

The California ANG flies Predators out of there for training, so there's still some military presence there, but it's primarily civilian now.

It's about an 8 hour drive to Tuscon from Victorville, so it's definitely a day trip. Worth it though. You can see Lakotas and other helicopters flying around Pinal, along with all the aircraft stored there.

Victorville is do-able in a day as it's only 100 miles from where I'm staying and sort of on the same route as Palmdale.Tucson is nearly 500 miles so will have to wait until 2016.

It's a shame though they don't have a 'spotter friendly' fence at Victorville.......

A long time ago now my wife and i visited friends stationed out of Spokane . We met them while they were stationed at DSC Woomera a support town for Nurrunga a base apparently full of janitors , yes they had to say that . Anyways we visited the AFB near Spokane . Upon approaching the base my mate said "try to jump the fence and get to those planes " . Apparently they were loaded with nukes just idling away . Later we went to the end of the runway and watched plane after plane doing touch and go landings . Oddly or perhaps not so much the AAFCAANS on base was the only one i could not go into , the only one out of many. Pretty awesome sight and even though we were set back a long way from the end of the runway we could still feel the wash . Mind you not as large as when the galaxy took of in Woomera . Now that was special even if me and the car were pelted with rocks .

There are some good spots at Victorville where you can see the entire parking area from the road. Don't even have to get out of your car to see most of the aircraft there.

So not all the fencing is so high you need a ladder to see over it?

Not at all. And what there is is mostly chain link so you can shoot through it easily enough.
