It’s like an airplane junkyard.

What is parked on that air base outside Tucson [TOO-saan], Arizona? Old warplanes!

Workers fix many. They store hundreds more. They will use parts to repair other planes.

Workers spray the planes with paint. It protects them from hot sun and strong winds.


READ MORE: The people who work at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base call the place an “airplane graveyard” or “boneyard.” Nearly all old Navy, Army, Air Force, and many other planes end up here. Sometimes workers fix up a plane. Every part of every aircraft they can save is one less part that needs to be bought or made somewhere else. These workers can see firsthand that moth and rust destroy our earthly possessions. Read Matthew 6:19-21 to learn what God tells us to do.
