    the airport is also called SCLA southern california logistics airport. boeing has an engine testing site along with custom aircraft modification site at the airport. there is also a airframe scholl there where students learn how to work on these aircraft. this is also where boeing is storing some of the defective 737's and fixing them as well. Many airlines are storing aircraft there during covid. all sorts of really cool aircraft right now including qantas A-380's. i go past there every other day and always see something new. boeing has an engine test platform parked there. it's a 747 with upto 3 different types of engines attached to it.

    Its called Flyable Storage, there are a lot of airplanes that are in Flyable Storage while others are taken apart for parts to keep other airplanes flying. One of the problems a company I worked for had the last two Volpar Beech 18's on the registry and they were taking parts off of one to keep the other one flying and it was a losing battle.

    The whole information you provided is so incorrect. airplanes get to the Boneyard because after certain amount of hours flown they require overhauling which may not be so sufficient anymore for an older plain. it's never about the fuel. companies don't care about fuel. After all fuels expenses are on consumers.
