Lang aerially photographed the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (309th AMARG) — better known as the Boneyard — in Tucson, Arizona, in March 2022. It is the world’s largest aircraft storage and preservation facility and holds almost 4,000 aircraft.

The German photographer’s mesmeric pictures show military and civilian aircraft laid out in neat rows contrasted by the orange-tinged earth of the Arizonian desert. Some of the planes look ready to be called into action, while some have tails and wings missing or are severely rusted.
