Pic of the Day: Abandoned Airplanes


This morning we got a rare look inside of the Mojave Air and Spaceport — an airplane “parking lot” in the middle of the Mojave Desert — thanks to Mental Floss’ Ransom Riggs. While many of the planes are still active (including a few of Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic space planes), the area is also home to a boneyard where out-of-service aircraft are picked apart like organ donors.
