There's a 'Boneyard' in Arizona where most US military planes go to die

At the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona, also known as the “Boneyard,” US military planes from all services go to die.

Single seat jets, large transport planes, helicopters, and even expire mental projects lay across a vast expanse of desert.

Some have been picked apart as the US Air Force and other branches of the military scramble to keep planes flying. Some have been resurrected, like a 55 year-old B-52H that the Air Force put back into service.
