The Independent (UK) reports that “the largest “plane graveyard” in the world where more than 4,400 aircraft are collecting dust in the Arizona desert can now be explored in intricate detail.”  

“A high definition interactive map produced by Bing shows the US military planes of all shapes and sizes lined up in meticulous rows on the reddish earth.”  

“Zooming in in ‘bird’s eye ‘ mode shows them in three-dimensional detail, with decommissioned fighters coated in protective sheeting and covered in white to protect them from the baking sun.”
