Shoot with care
The only reason I placed these restrictions was to emphasize that you cannot go onto the airport property! If you want to take one of their scheduled monthly tours then visit the website. I was well off the airport property limits from my vantage point.

About this spot
The Mojave airport is also a storage facility for commercial airliners, due to its vast area and dry, low-humidity desert conditions. The area is located in a remote area away from large metropolitan areas and other major airports.

Large Boeing, Airbus, McDonnell-Douglas, and Lockheed aircraft owned by major airlines are stored at times at Mojave.

Some aircraft reach the end of their useful life and are scrapped at the Mojave aircraft boneyard, while others are refurbished and returned to active service.
