Well timing related (just barely), scraping an airplane is a function of
the metals market. For those in southern Ca., KVCV (Southern California
Logistics) is where they melt down the old planes. These salvage yards
knew the content of each bird down to a science, and thus know when to
start the process.

If you slip them $20, they will let you tour the boneyard. Same goes
for Mojave.
