    Skyvector is an interesting site and I found this today.

    For Grand Forks AFB which is very much less used since they had Minuteman, tankers and B-52's based there.

    A NOTAM "Special Security Reasons" peaked my interest and it was issued in advance for a base with very much diminished importance....But the site is a nice resource.

    Looks like something landing from the west on a north south runway...

    Do they have a golf course there? ;-)

    And he doesn't realize it's probably under snow.

    Yep... Gotta have some reason for the ground pounders to exist... If only to secure the 19th hole....;)

    C'mon guys, it's obvious that while we are all focused on the AirAsia flight, the other missing plane is being brought in for retrofitting as a flying bomb for us to crash into an Iranian reactor. Geez, how much clearer can it be?

    I will gladly take that assignment at the 19th hole.... [chopper]
