Cool jets. I want one now.

Desert jet fighter. Two Fighter Jets in the Desert

In the town of Gila Bend, just a couple miles north of The Spaceage Motel, you will find two fighter jets just sitting by the road behind a wire fence. The entrance sign to this "facility" stated that it is (was?) the Gila Bend Municipal Airport but the place honestly looked abandoned to me. The jets make for a nice break in the desert scenery and look fairly well kept.
