Where Vehicles Are Left To Die

What happens to all of those huge hulking ships, planes, trains and construction vehicles that are just too expensive to properly disassemble? Well, in many places of the World a little back-handed passing of money to the proper authorities can allow you to dump your rusty vehicle in a single place without any repercussions. There are areas where even the government is willing to look the other way as it's own fleet of old ships and planes are left to rust away. From dilapidated submarines to military aircraft the metal cemeteries are growing fast and because of this there is a new sense of fear that this will have environmental drawbacks.

Actually, they do sell the parts. Davis Monthan makes several billion a year selling parts to friendly nations. And the very reason Davis Monthan is in Arizona is because it seldom rains there and the conditions are ideal to preserve aircraft for long duration storage. So to say that these planes are left to rot is largely inaccurate.

This isn't a big deal. Not only for the reasons mentioned above, the price of scrap metals has gone through the roof and continues to rise. As time goes on, the incentive to recycle them will overtake their value as a spare parts yard. Then no more metal graveyard.
