Old airplanes stored in the desert

Old airplanes stored in the desert

Old airplanes, including Boeing 747-400s, are stored in the desert in Victorville, California. Last year, there were zero orders placed by commercial airlines for new Boeing 747s or Airbus A380s, reflecting a fundamental shift in the industry toward smaller, twin-engine planes. Smaller planes cost less to fly than the stately, four-engine jumbos, which can carry as many as 525 passengers.
