Mojave is the home of many rarely seen former military aircraft. It is the home of the Civilian Test Center and accommodates a multitude of stored airliners. Here are photos from some recent visits to the Mojave Airport.

I am not associated with the Mojave Airport. I just have a lot of pictures of the Mojave Airport on display on my web site. If you want to see the retired airliners at Mojave visit the Mojave Air and Space Port web site.

Pictures on the left side of the page were taken recently. Pictures on the right side of the page show the same airplanes on earlier occasions.
