Boneyard Delivery: On Oct. 29, 2008, I had the surreal experience of delivering a nearly new aircraft to an aircraft boneyard in Victorville, CA. My airline was returning the majority of their aircraft to Boeing, who had no buyers for them at the time. They were later put back into service with a Mexican airline. Here, the storage facility crew is meeting us to take possession of the aircraft. I’m on the far left and Cpt. Ward is on the far right.
