Los Angeles, Victorville/Southern California Logistics, San Bernardino, Hawthorne & Los Angeles – Sunday 22nd March 2020 (Grant Robinson)

Hi all,

This was our last day in the USA and we still had more Boeing MAX to see! By now it was clear that this might be the last trip away for the foreseeable future and what a trip it was!

I was converted to using PlaneBase a few years back and all the log posts you have seen from me recently have all been created using PlaneBase and a bit of Excel trickery to get the format that you see below.

PlaneBase tells me that 5405 aircraft (including some repeats) were logged on this mammoth trip with the breakdown being; 504 Bizjets, 135 Bizprops, 2909 Jets, 217 Props, 203 Military, 1243 General Aviation and 194 Helicopters. Within those totals, 441 Boeing MAX were seen.

Of this lot, there were only a couple of (general aviation) items that were not to be found in PlaneBase, but then a quick email to the PlaneBase admins soon resolved that. Before anyone suggests it, I have nothing to do with the PlaneBase team, but just wanted to share my thoughts in case any of you are thinking about using any of the databases out there. On with the last day log…….

Victorville/Southern California Logistics

Just under 2 hours and 100 miles later, we arrived at Victorville. It was very quiet around the perimeter being quite early on a Sunday morning.

The last time I came to this location, it was George AFB and I saw 45 Phantoms parked out on the vast ramps, 30 “GA” coded F-4Es from 35th TTW and 15 “WW” coded F-4E and F-4Gs from 37th TFW. This was back in 1990 when I took part in my first big States (mostly military) bash. It was a nice touch to see a preserved F-4C on display to remember the heritage of this place.

Anyhow as it was my first visit here since becoming a civilian airliner storage site, I needed quite a few of the stored FedEx but the main reason for being here was for the many stored Boeing MAX of which we confirmed 32 Southwest ones and another 29 from various other airlines including five all white ones. I realise that there are supposed to be 34 Southwest examples here, but we didn’t manage to count more than 32 from the various angles that we found. Anyone know if they are ever moved about about or hangared there?

We just missed the arrival of six US Army AH-64Ds and I was unable to fully read off two of them and came away with just the last three. Can anyone confirm what “461” and “008” could or should be please?

We spent several hours driving around the perimeter of this large airfield and most of the many, many airliners here can be read off with patience. We witnessed more in-service Southwest 737s arriving for storage and many of you might have seen aerial pictures of this airfield and the many stored airliners on your news footage as an example of how badly COVID-19 had hit the airline industry. Certainly plenty more arrived after we left here……

San Bernardino

I had thought about visiting Chino and its excellent museums on the way back to LAX but I guessed that they would be closed due to COVID and so instead tried out a first visit to San Bernardino. A wholly frustrating place but still well worth a visit especially for the CH-47Ds. It is frustrating because you will miss as much as you manage to read off, due to the layout of the airfield and the way that the stored airlines are parked together in big groups.

You can access viewpoints along the Northern side but the entire Southern side is off limits due to quarrying and a massive Amazon Prime distribution centre. Eastern end offers no views and Western end is too far away.

Hawthorne

A quick drive-by at Hawthorne which is surprisingly close to LAX at just 3 miles away. It was pouring with rain again by this point and so it looked like the trip was going to end weather wise as it started in LA.

Los Angeles

We spent a little time on Imperial Hill and LAX was noticeably much quieter in all aspects when compared to our start here 11 days ago and the use of masks was much more visible within the terminal. Virgin Atlantic Airways Boeing 787-9 G-VBZZ waited to take us home as VS24 which was a fairly full flight and took 9 hours and 18 minutes to go direct to LHR.
