Various visits to airbases in the USA

In May I had the oppurtunity to visit some USAF bases in Nevada and Arizona.
Nellis (KLSV), Luke (KLUF), Davis Monthan (FDMA) and Phoenix (KPHX)

Of course Nellis is always a good place to go and also this time. There were a lot of visitors (like E3, E6, E8, EC130, RC135, RC12, B1B, CH53E) and Nellis was the temporary base for the 27th Wing out of Cannon AFB New Mexico. I also saw four A10A's from 355FS/AK, 9 F15C's and 6 F15E's from Mountain Home and four AH1W's plus an UH1N from HMLA369. Not bad for one day!

Luke AFB in Arizona is the homebase for 9 squadrons of F16's! 135 were seen that day on the ramp. Special interest for me were the Taiwaneese and Singaporees examples.

Davis Monthan

After visiting Tucson ANGB and the Pima museum I drove past Davis Monthan. Six T37's were visiting on this Saterday. Other interesting airframes were two F105 Thunderchiefs and the rows of (ex?) Pakistani F16's in storage for a long time now at AMARC.

Just before flying home from Phoenix Sky Harbor I drove past the ANG facility. Four KC135E's were seen on the ramp.
