But on the ground, it's a different story. With all sorts of planes in various stages of disassembly, many of them several decades old, it's easy to see how this place got the nickname that most people know it as... The Boneyard. In this video, we hear the nostalgic stories of the Airmen who flew these planes decades ago.
