My guess would be the Marshall's, given the US military's history of high-tech stuff going on there, but I could also see the Solomon's working, esp given their proximity to China.

That proximity is also a disadvantage too.

So the Philippines, Guam def out. Too close. Japan out. Solomons and the Marshalls cutting it too close, but maybe.


Autrailia is a good bet. OR even islands owned by the UK or australia in the indian ocean or south pacific.

Would want someplace that has other air strip nearby incase of an emergency I would imagine.

Heck maybe even Hawaii if the range on the birds are long enough.

In flight refueling. The range is long enough from the mainland.

That makes more sense. Take her off from the west coast. or even west coast adjacent. Have a tanker take off from Guam. Meet up somewhere over the eastern pacific n refuel. Then proceed to penetrate someplace sovereign faster than a parolee stumbling into a Abercrombi & Fitch Men's changing room.

going the other way around, fly a tanker from Thule Greenland for a mid-morning snack over North Sea?

In the Pacific, Wake Island seems usefully located.

Wake Island


DING DING DING!!!

I think we have a winner here folks, take a look at the facts:

Restricted island in the middle of nowhere (thousands of miles from anything else)? Check.

10,000 foot runway? Check.

Way, way more exotic looking fuel infrastructure than you'd expect for such a minor base? Check.

Evidence of recent construction near the hangars, including a small, SR-71-sized climate controlled clamshell hangar just like the ones for the B-2s at Diego Garcia? Check.

There's pretty clearly SOMETHING exotic based there. It may not be our fastmover, but there's definitely SOMETHING...

That is perfect. Kudos to MBKennel and Barnalby. Pretty place to vacation if you are a fast paced jet setting lady.

There aren't hangars on Wake. What look like hangars along the taxiway are parking pads for larger aircraft.

Looky here...

Look again, and tell me what those structures on either end of the tarmac are...

Not big enough for aircraft. They're shops and work areas.

Since the Mods are annoyed with me lately (OK all the time) I will use this opportunity to suck up to Zaphod and side with him. They do look like the types of tents they put up for show rooms, storage and work areas.




Although if one were to hide something there they would use a hanger that looks like something else.

HERE on the other hand is in the middle of nowhere, has lots of large hanger space, new hanger construction and is just a hop skip and a jump from the entire Asian continent and has tanker support.

If you scale Wake Island and Diego Garcia both to 200 ft/whatever-length-it-is, the tents on Wake Island are definitely much smaller.

There's definitely a ton of trucks and little apparent overgrowth on Wake. Why do they need so much work shop area on the island in the middle of nowhere? I assume they still do something there given the fact it's clearly not abandoned.

Also, man Diego Garcia looks like such a nice spot to vacation. Not joinin the Navy just to go though.

You know if somebody wanted to make something go away a movable tarp which looked just like parking pads for aircraft from the top would be interesting.

it moved in a arcing motion and if something was out side the atmosphere and moving away from you but in a straight-ish line it would kind of dim out to nothing. that is what it looked like.


i have my crappy handicam on a tripod batt. ready to do waiting by the door where i smoke.


mbkennel

Looks cosy in there!

I have to agree with Zaphod and framedragged, when you compare the temporary structure on Wake and Diego, the ones on Diego Garcia are considerably larger. Of course that doesn't mean theres nothing at Wake, just nothing when the images were taken :-)

The B-2 looks both rather light grey and spit-shined & freshly waxed compared to earlier pictures. Except the leading edge which is still matte.

Hold equipment needed to work on the top of the aircraft. Safety lines and the like.
