I guess this could go in the general forum, but did anyone see that special on history channel last night. I guess Evergreen owns the commercial aircraft boneyard out in the desert.
 
Would that be Marana Air Park?

Been there a few times and yes, boneyard indeed....Pan Am 737s...Where they still there?
 
I saw the show

That is where Evergreen converted the B747 in to a fire-tanker.
 
I landed there once. Pretty interesting place. Very cool, yet sad at the same time.
 
Evergreen 747 Tanker

Does anybody know when or if the FAA/Dept of Agriculture/BLM/Forest Service etc will certify the 47 Tanker? This years fire season is almost over.
 
Evergreen has a lease to use the airport, but there is a chance they will end up going someplace else. Part of the lease agreement is that Evergreen will allow public use for the airport, which as far as I know, they have not done.

There are actually about 13 or so companies I think under the Evergreen umbrella.

I have been in there numerous times, and some Evergreen dude gives winds over unicom. Lots of trainers, etc in the area
