Eagles on the Runway

 A group of F-15 Eagles on a runway at Keflavik AFB, Iceland.

U.S. Air Force F-15C/D Eagles assigned to the 493rd Expeditionary Fighter Squadron conduct routine operations in support of NATO air policing at Keflavik Air Base, Iceland, Oct. 26, 2020. Aircrews rely on the critical judgement of Air Battle Managers at the Control and Reporting Center to ensure their missions are conducted as safely as possible. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt.

I had a buddy, an Air Force vet that I shared an office with, years ago.  He told me that they transferred him to Keflavik and told him that he'd love it.  There was a woman behind every tree.  He got off the airplane and looked around; no trees.

57th FIS was an 'interesting' bunch when we deployed up there...

They make that same joke about Fort Irwin.
