The Air Center is an industrial facility on the site of the former Walker Air Force Base. It offers its aviation customers--including air carriers whose planes need to be stored during slow business periods--a large amount of warehouse space, as well as the ability for airplane repairs and other forms of operations.
The facility currently has between 100 and 200 planes in storage, but after the terroritst attacks of September 11, 2001, there were more than 300, as the airline business took a big hit.
CNET News.com reporter Daniel Terdiman visited the Roswell International Air Center as part of his around the Southwest.
