Check Out these photos of 309 AMARG Aircraft Covered With Snow

On Jan. 2, 2019 a rare snowfall struck the normally arid desert outside Davis-Monthan Air Force Base (AFB)

Taken on Jan. 2, 2019 the beautiful photos in this post show something you don’t see every day: a snowfall in the normally arid desert outside Davis-Monthan Air Force Base (AFB) near Tucson, Arizona. As many will know, Davis-Monthan AFB is home of U.S. Air Force’s 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG).

309 AMARG origins can be traced back to was to 1946 when Army’s San Antonio Air Technical Service Command established a storage facility for B-29 and C-47 aircraft at Davis-Monthan AFB.

Davis-Monthan AFB was chosen because of Tucson’s low humidity, infrequent rainfall, alkaline soil and high altitude of 2,550 feet (780 m), reducing rust and corrosion. The hard soil makes it possible to move aircraft around without having to pave the storage areas.

Given these exceptional weather conditions, the photos in this article give you the unique chance to see 309 AMARG aircraft covered with snow.
