[Closed] 06APR19 / 2000Z | Plane & Pilot: Victorville Boneyard Flyin @ KVCV

Hello fellow pilots!

Southern California Logistics Airport, more commonly known as Victorville Boneyard, is home to Southern California Aviation, a large transitional facility for commercial aircraft. Every year, hundreds of aircraft from around the world are sent there to be stored. These are primarily aircraft that have been retired by major airlines, and are waiting to be sold or scrapped for parts. Join Plane & Pilot on April 6th as we try to recreate the picture you see below, by having retired aircraft fly in from airline hubs around the globe. Each attendee will be able to choose their route and aircraft, and then fly to KVCV and park in the massive lit to simulate the retirement of the aircraft. This will be a very exciting and unique event, we hope you can join us! Everyone Grade 3+ is welcome! Just post below and we will add you to the list.

I’ll put you down for an MD-11 since Delta doesn’t fly DC-10s.

You are welcome to fly back, just wait until we announce that the event has ended.
