AMARG, or the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group, is a joint service facility managed by the US Air Force Material Command located in Tucson.
Often referred to as 'The Boneyard', AMARG is an aerospace storage and maintenance facility adjoining Davis-Monthan Air Force Base which provides a service to all branches of the US military as well as other national agencies.
Typically controlling over 4,200 aircraft, as well as many other types of military equipment, AMARG works very hard in promoting itself as not just a 'Boneyard.’ Many of the stored aircraft can be returned to an operational status in a short period of time and there is a continual process of anti-corrosion and re-preservation work which keeps aircraft in a stable condition during their stay.
The Pima Air & Space Museum offers exclusive bus tours of the Boneyard. The tour lasts 1.5 hours and it is recommended to purchase tickets at 0900 when the museum opens to secure your time slot. Hours are seasonal, so always check before you head out.
The Pima Air & Space Museum is one of the largest air and space museums in the world and the largest non-government funded aviation museum. You'll see more than 300 aircraft and spacecraft including many of the most historically significant and technically advanced craft ever produced, both from the United States and throughout the world.
