Davis-Monthan in the News

C-27J Spartans Put in Storage
October, 2013

Davis-Monthan AMARG 's facility has been in the news in October, 2013, as reports surfaced about the Air Force's intentions to store newly-built C-27J Spartan aircraft in its desert boneyard in Tucson.

Reportedly, twelve 12 C-27s have already been sent to Davis-Monthan AFB, and another five aircraft may be sent directly from the assembly line. The Air Force has spent $567 million on 21 C-27J planes since 2007, according to purchasing officials at Dayton’s Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

The C-27J is manufactured by Alenia North America, part of the Italian firm Finmeccanica Inc., and prime contractor L-3 Communications.

The Last F-4 Phantom Leaves Davis-Monthan AMARG
April, 2013

The final F-4 Phantom II regenerated from storage at the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group performed its last flight over Tucson, Arizona on April 17, 2013, before flying to Mojave, California.

Tail number 68-0599, an RF-4C Phantom, arrived at AMARG for storage on January 18, 1989 and had not flown since. The jet's assigned call sign was "Last One."

AMARG's technicians re-installed hundreds of parts and performed thousands of hours of maintenance to return the fighter to flyable status. This aircraft represents the 316th F-4 withdrawn from storage in support of Air Combat Command's full-scale aerial target program.

BAE Systems will convert the aircraft into a QRF-4C drone, and then deliver it to the 82nd Aerial Targets Squadron at Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida.

Davis-Monthan's role in the storage of military aircraft continued well after the post-WWII era.

With the area's low humidity in the 10%-20% range, meager rainfall of 11" annually, hard alkaline soil, and high altitude of 2,550 feet allowing the aircraft to be naturally preserved for cannibalization or possible reuse, Davis-Monthan was a clear choice as a major storage facility. The geology of the desert allowed aircraft to be moved around without having to pave the storage areas.

Immediately after the war, the Army's San Antonio Air Technical Service Command established a storage facility primarily for B-29 Superfortress and C-47 Skytrain aircraft at Davis-Monthan. By May of 1946, more than 600 B-29 Superfortresses and 200 C-47 Skytrains had been moved to Davis-Monthan.

In February of 1956, the first Convair B-36 Peacemaker bombers arrived at Davis-Monthan AFB for scrapping. All of the fleet of 384 Peacemakers would ultimately be dismantled except for four remaining B-36 survivors saved for air museums.

In 1965, the Department of Defense decided to close the Navy's Litchfield Park storage facility in Phoenix, and consolidate the Navy's surplus air fleet into Davis-Monthan. Along with this move, the name of the 2704th Air Force Storage and Disposition Group was changed to Military Aircraft Storage and Disposition Center (MASDC) to better reflect its joint services mission.

In early 1965, aircraft from Litchfield Park began the move from Phoenix to Tucson, mostly moved by truck, a cheaper alternative than removing planes from their protective coverings, flying them, and protecting the aircraft again.

The last Air Force B-47 Stratojet bomber was retired at the end of 1969, and the entire fleet was dismantled at Davis-Monthan except for about 30 Stratojets which were saved for display in air museums.

Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center (AMARC)

In 1985, the facility's name was changed again, from MASDC to the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center (AMARC) as outdated ICBM missiles also entered storage at Davis-Monthan. In the 1990s 365 surplus B-52 Stratofortress bombers were dismantled at the facility.

Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG)

Davis-Monthan is today the location of the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG), the sole aircraft boneyard and parts reclamation facility for all excess military and government aircraft. Aircraft from the Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, NASA and other government agencies are processed at AMARG, which employs 550 people, almost all civilians.

Another role of AMARG is to support the program that converts old fighter jets, such as the F-4 Phantom II and F-16, into aerial target drones. It also serves as an auxiliary facility of the National Museum of the United States Air Force, and stores tooling for out-of-production military aircraft.

AMARG's typical inventory comprises more than 4,400 aircraft, which makes it the largest aircraft storage and preservation facility in the world.

The Air Force Materiel Command's 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG) is organized as follows:

  • 576th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Squadron
  • 577th Commodities Reclamation Squadron
  • 578th Storage and Disposal Squadron
  • 309th Support Squadron

AMARG Aircraft In-Processing Procedures

When aircraft arrive at the AMARG, they are by the "receiving branch". Each aircraft brings along its entire history of documentation, including maintenance actions over its years of service.

All aircraft going into storage are processed as follows:

  • All guns, ejection seat charges, and classified hardware are removed, along with clocks and data plates.
  • Each aircraft is washed on arrival . The washing is especially important for aircraft that have served aboard aircraft carriers or in tropical locations where they were subject to the corrosive effects of warm, salty air.
  • The fuel system is protected by draining it, refilling it with lightweight oil, and then draining it again, leaving a protective oil film.
  • The aircraft is sealed from dust, sunlight, and high temperatures. This is done using a variety of materials, ranging from "spraylat" (a white, opaque, high-tech vinyl plastic compound sprayed on the aircraft) to simple garbage bags. With the white coating, interior temperatures will usually remain within 15 degrees of the outside ambient air temperature.
  • The plane is towed by a tug to its designated "storage" position.

Aircraft Inventory Type Categories Used at AMARG

The official "Type" categories assigned aircraft in storage at AMARG are as follows:

  • RF-4C Phantom tail number 68-0599 after regeneration at Davis-Monthan AMARGRF-4C Phantom II tail number 68-0599 after regeneration at Davis-Monthan AMARG
    Type 1000 - aircraft at AMARG for long-term storage, to be maintained until recalled to active service. These aircraft are "inviolate" - have a high potential to return to flying status and no parts may be removed from them. These aircraft are “represerved” every four years.
  • Type 2000 - aircraft available for parts reclamation, as “aircraft storage bins” for parts, to keep other aircraft flying.
  • Type 3000 - "flying hold" aircraft kept in near flyable condition in short-term, temporary storage; waiting for transfer to another unit, sale to another country, or reclassification to the other three types.
  • Type 4000 - aircraft in excess of DoD needs - these have been gutted and every useable part has been reclaimed. They will be sold, broken down into scrap, smelted into ingots, and recycled.

Kolb Road runs north-south through the AMARG area, and is below ground level so viewing aircraft from this part of the road is really not possible from a moving vehicle.

The northern boundary of the area is East Escalante Road and East Irvington Road, while the southern boundary runs along East Valencia Road. See map below.

The area to the west of Kolb Road is used mainly for long-term storage, but also contains the arrivals ramp, maintenance shelters, wash racks, lubrication area, and preservation preparation.

Also on the west side is an area commonly called "Celebrity Row" or "History Row", a major stopping point on the bus tours and includes representative aircraft of the type in storage at the time. The aircraft on display in this area will vary from time to time, and year to year.

The area to the east is used to store aircraft which are in the process of being reclaimed for parts. In Fiscal Year 2012 AMARG "pulled" more than 10,000 parts, with a value of $472 million. In that year the five fleets calling for the most parts were the Air Force's F-15, B-1B, F-16, C-5, and C-135. The only Navy airplane on the top 10 list, the P-3 Orion, came in sixth.

Orders for spare parts are received by AMARG on a Form 44. It documents the requesting base/unit, its priority, whether it supports a combat mission, classification, special handling requirements, acceptable substitutions, and other information.

Aircraft Scrapping Companies Near Davis-Monthan AFB

Once a military plane is stripped of parts, the remains are put up for bid to private scrap dealers. Many of these are located close by Davis-Monthan, including K-Tech Aviation, Southwest Alloys, Allied Aircraft, Specialized Aircraft, United Aeronautical Corporation, Mar-Pak, Page Airways and others. In earlier years, such companies would receive aircraft mostly intact; today, they are shredded/crushed before being provided to the scrapping companies.

AMARG is a controlled-access facility and thus off-limits to personnel without the proper clearance. The only access to the boneyard for non-cleared individuals is via a bus tour.

The guided bus tours of AMARG are available Monday thru Friday, excluding Federal holidays.

The tours last about an hour and a half, and are highly recommended. Tour buses enter the Irvington Gate onto the base off Kolb Road, and visit "Celebrity Row," the maintenance areas and long-term storage on the west side of Kolb Road. The tour also visits the parts reclamation area to the east of Kolb Road. While the tour stops at different locations, no one is allowed off the bus.

Seating is limited, and tickets are issued on a first-come, first-serve basis, so plan ahead accordingly. Arrive at least one hour before scheduled departure times.

AMARG tour tickets must be purchased at the nearby Pima Air and Space Museum, located across E. Valencia Road from Davis-Monthan. Bus tours depart from the Pima entrance.

Due to security requirements on Davis-Monthan, there are baggage checks before boarding the bus, and limitations on what you can carry on the tours.

Government issued photo identification is also required for tour members age 16 or older.

Check with the museum regarding departure times and seasonal schedules. Read more about the Pima Air and Space Museum.

Other customized, special-needs tour arrangements must be made through the Davis-Monthan AFB Community Relations office.

Davis-Monthan Field ... History of The Early Years

The Tucson Chamber of Commerce established the nation's first municipally-owned airfield in 1919 in the dry, Arizona desert.

In 1927 the airfield was moved to a site southeast of town and dedicated as Davis-Monthan Field, then the largest municipal airport in the United States.

The airport was named in honor of Lieutenants Samuel H. Davis and Oscar Monthan, two WWI pilots, and both Tucson natives, who died in military aircraft accidents.

Davis-Monthan Army Air Field During WWII

Davis-Monthan Airport became Tucson Army Air Field in 1940, and was renamed Davis-Monthan Army Air Field on December 3, 1941, just prior to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

The outbreak of World War II brought major changes to Davis-Monthan, with units of the 1st Bombardment Wing and 41st Bombardment Group (BG) departing for the Pacific theater. In January of 1942 jurisdiction of the field transferred from the 4th Air Force to 2nd Air Force. The following month the 39th BG arrived and began training B-17 Flying Fortress and B-24 Liberator units and crews. By mid-1942 B-24 Liberator training became the sole mission of the 39th BG, with all other flight training phased out. In December of 1944 Davis-Monthan became home to the B-29 Superfortress.

Training at the airfield came to a halt in August 1945, when the Japanese unconditionally surrendered. Davis-Monthan also played a post-war role by housing German POWs from June 1945 to March 1946.

With the end of World War II and victory over Japan and Germany assured, the United States found itself with a large inventory of aircraft, numbering about 65,000. These were temporarily stored and subsequently disposed of at 30 airfields, with the largest concentrations at seven major depots such as Kingman Army Airfield in Arizona and Walnut Ridge Army Air Field in Arkansas.

While some planes went into civilian usage, most were scrapped and their metal components melted and sold. Other planes were kept for future usage, and stored at several locations, including Warner-Robins, Victorville, Pyote Army Air Field in Texas, and Davis-Monthan AAF.

After the war, the Army created an aircraft storage facility at Davis-Monthan, primarily for B-29 Superfortress and C-47 Skytrain aircraft at Davis-Monthan. By May of 1946, more than 600 B-29 Superfortresses and 200 C-47 Skytrains had been moved to Davis-Monthan.

In addition, about 30 other aircraft were stored at Davis-Monthan that were destined for museums, including the "Enola Gay" and "Bockscar". Many of the B-29s would be pressed back into service as the Korean War escalated in the early 1950s.

Davis-Monthan's Role as a Key Modern Day Air Force Base

Davis-Monthan's Post-WWII inactivity quickly ended in March of 1946 when the newly activated Strategic Air Command (SAC) assumed control of the base. Two months later two B-29 Bombardment Groups, the 40th and 444th, arrived and once again the B-29 Superfortress became a key element in base operations.

On January 13, 1948 Davis-Monthan Army Air Field was officially redesignated Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

The following month on February 20, 1948, the first B-50 Superfortress arrived and was delivered to the 43 BW. On June 18, the 43rd Air Refueling Squadron (ARS) was assigned to the base and had the honor of being one of the first two air refueling squadrons in the U.S. Air Force, flying the KB-29M tanker. 

In February of 1953 the 303rd BW received four Lockheed T-33 Shooting Stars training jets. At the same time, construction on a new 11,500 feet runway was completed in preparation for the arrival of the first jet bomber, the B-47 Stratojet.

F-86A Sabre and F-86D Sabre Dog aircraft remained the squadron's primary weapon systems until 1959 when the F-89 Scorpion was added to the arsenal. Another aircraft change occurred in 1960 when the F-101B Voodoo became the units' interceptor.

On October 15, 1959, the Air Force Ballistic Missile Committee approved Davis-Monthan as the first Titan II base, and in the early 1960s the base was selected to become home to an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) wing.

In 1964, the last B-47 departed Davis-Monthan, making way for the arrival of nearly 50 F-4 Phantom II aircraft. A new mission was to train all aircrews for the conversion of 12 tactical wings to the F-4C fighter-bomber jet. The 4453 CCTW trained a majority of F-4 crews for the conflict in Southeast Asia. 

On July 1, 1971 the Air Force reactivated the 355th Tactical Fighter Wing (TFW) at Davis-Monthan with the Vought A-7D Corsair II as the primary weapon system. In early 1975, the 355 TFW prepared for conversion to the Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II - Warthog.

Today, the host unit at Davis–Monthan remains the 355th Fighter Wing (355 FW) assigned to the Twelfth Air Force, which is headquartered at the base as part of Air Combat Command (ACC). The 355th flies the A-10 Thunderbolt II and associated support aircraft such as the EC-130 Hercules.

The staffing at the base includes 6,000 Airmen and 1,700 civilian personnel.

The base, which uses FAA Identifier DMA, is located 2,704 feet above sea level and features runway 12/30 at 13,643 foot in length and 200 feet in width.
