I drove another time to Mojave (City) to find the airplane graveyard. I have found it, but the thing is that it is not allowed to take pictures!!! The planes are privately owned and they sell the parts to airline companies etc. If you drive up to the office, go inside and ask for a tour. It had cost me 10 dollars and I was alone with the employee. He drove me around the graveyard. It was quite fun to see the old exploited planes. If you need an approximate address for the graveyard you can use the following: 16946 Roper Street, Mojave
