One thing about the New Mexico climate is that it's VERY dry. So much so that a lot of airlines have been parking their airplanes there while trying to figure out what to do with them. It's really pretty sad to see 100's of millions of dollars of airplanes sitting on the tarmac just sitting their remaining life waiting for "disposal" instructions. A few years ago I actually saw three B-727's that I'd flown over in Europe, being slowly dismantled. It was pretty sad to know that these beautiful airplanes that had allowed me such a wonderful view of Europe were dying a slow, piecemeal death. One day I'll rescue one of these grand old birds and make a nice home out of it. What do you think about that????
