Military Aircraft Boneyard

On a vacant lot behind chain link fencing, next to an auto body shop in St. Louis, is a surplus military aircraft boneyard. Everything there, from a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter to a Soviet MiG-17.

The owner says he saved them all from being scrapped, although none appear to be able to fly the friendly skies ever again.

The gated fence appears to be open during business hours. Call ahead to see if you can have permission to be allowed inside.
