Do you think that the newer an airplane, the safer the flight? Not quite. Modern commercial aircraft are very robust. One of the oldest commercial airplanes, a Boeing 737-200, made its first flight 40 years ago and still makes 3-4 regular flights a day! But what happens to the retired aircraft?

There are several options for airplanes that don’t fly anymore. One of the most common options is simply storage. The most ideal places for this purpose of storing airliners are deserts with dry climates, where the planes won’t rust too quickly. But what happens to airplanes after they arrive?
