This was my first purchase of an aircraft "boneyard" book, and it was worth the price I paid for it. It's packed with a history of the facility, and has a good compilation of facts and figures of what has happened there over the years to various aircraft types.

This was my first purchase of an aircraft "boneyard" book, and it was worth the price I paid for it. It was first published in 1987, so recent years aren't covered. It features a few historical black and white photos; but most photos are full color. Many of the photos were taken by the author, Philip Chinnery. One person found this helpful.

Great Book

Philip D. Chinnery has written at least 4 books on Davis-Monthan AFB (a.k.a. "The Boneyard"). Unfortunately, this is the weakest effort. Don't get me wrong. It's still a solid 4-Stars worth of textual/pictoral entertainment. If you're an aviation enthusiast you'll be enjoying the photos of individual aircraft very much. My gripe with the book is the premise for its existence: That we'd be treated to both aircraft and the emblems that adorn them; maybe splashy nose art, and perhaps treated with a wonderful, historical viewpoint. Alas, I was disappointed. The photos are very good, and you'll see aircraft galore, but to try and create the theme that this is all about aircraft emblems is pushing it. It feels like Chinnery spent a week or two photographing the emblems available at the AFB over those couple weeks, and little else was done photo-research-wise. Even some pre-storage aircraft tail graffiti [though nicely done] made it into this book. You'll see some nose art, but a great deal of what passes as "emblems" are really just "unit badges" and "tail markings". Nothing to get excited about in either of those arenas either. Get this book for the [exceptional] photography of the aircraft themselves--that's the book's great strength--but pass on it if you want a historical perspective and photo essay on nose art, or if you want a historical perspective on unit badges. It just doesn't make that cut.
