Default Hornets chopped up in San Diego

While looking at the navy base on Coronado, the airfield area to the far left/west side, there appear to be several Hornets, baby and super, that are chopped up, with lots of wings missing. Any idea what is going on? Seems to be a lot of gnarly stuff for one (seemingly) regular base to have going on all at once.

Long term storage pending rebuild and modifications. At one time, Lemoore had over 40 jets in various stages of disassembly. While the number is now getting smaller, some of these jets haven't flown in 6+ years.

Apparently, a lot of them were being rebuilt to C+ standard, from various existing frames
