1945 - nearly 4,000 surplus aircraft of all types are waiting to be scrapped at Walnut Ridge, Ark.

 


This forest of upended P-40 Warhawks, stripped of valuable items, are just a few of the nearly 4,000 surplus aircraft of all types neatly aligned at Walnut Ridge, Ark., awaiting the acetylene torch that will cut them apart and. the 10-ton tractor that will mash the metal into scrap. The field was established as a storage depot by the Reconstruction Finance Corp., which is scrapping $8,000,000 worth of combat aircraft per day.
