Airport Graveyard at Maxton
Northwest Airline Graveyard/Boneyard at Maxton.

Flew into Maxton for fuel on a Saturday and it was totally closed and locked up. Thankfully, there was a number there to call the manager who informed me of how to get fuel.

While there, took a look around at the VERY MANY aircraft there in the boneyard/graveyard! Wow, looks like this is where Northwest Airlines Planes "go west"!

Pretty neat to see from the air or on the ground....an entire fleet of airlines just sitting there waiting to be disassembled!

Fuel prices at Maxton were reasonable and PLENTY of parking with HUGE runways.
