Australia Building Plane Boneyard In Alice Springs

When a commercial jet gets decommissioned, it generally gets retired to the Pinal Airpark in Arizona (pictured). Soon, it may get retired to Alice Springs, with the red centre of Australia's airport being selected as the site for the first Aircraft "boneyard" outside the US.

According to an AFP report, Alice Springs was selected as the location due to its arid climate, which is supposedly perfect for preserving the decommissioned planes. The site will originally be 110 hectares, with taxiwork beginning this year and the first planes arriving next year.
