View attachment Worlds Third Largest Airforce.pdf
I haven't looked at the PDF yet but I heard the Civil Air Patrol was the worlds's 3rd largest "Air Force" (and also the largest single customer of Cessna aircraft!)
ahhh, the Boneyard. I've seen it from the highway, I think the proper name is AMARC or something like that. Don't think it really make a profit though, has to cost a heck of a lot of money to prep all those planes

I think the CAF is up there. Almost all the B52s are gone. Just enough to keep the fleet going. I remember going to Pima when it first opened, and seeing the B52s all lined up along the road so the Russians could easily see them and count them getting chopped up for the SALT treaty. All those F4s are now turned into drones. I also remember a bunch of airliner 707s for parts for KC135s. Cheaper to buy a whole plane than to buy a part from Boeing.
Separate names with a comma.
