    I wonder if that could be that big "boneyard" in Arizona?

    Pima? Too much grass for Pima, IMHO. Possibly an Alcoa Aluminum "recycling center"?

    ETA: No engines, they're ready for the chopper.

    Yes, too much grass for AZ. I was there last summer - everything is sand (and I mean everything except the tarmac)! Great place to visit. Sad to see them giving the axe to the B-52s, though.

    Stacked that way to conserve space, I should imagine, and at least one of those planes still has its Stripes.

    That, or someone is setting up one awesome game of Dominoes...
