An F15 Strike Eagle at Eielson AFB in Fairbanks
We live relatively close to Elmendorf AFB and have definitely noticed the heavy aircraft activity from this huge military exercise. Their being there and doing what they do so well is a comforting thought. However, while working out in the yard and watching and hearing them, I realize how extremely frightening it would be if there were a question whether they were friendly or enemy!
