Its not WW2 anymore, and military aircraft are now jet powered, there is no such thing as "Ferry Command". There are such things now as Aerial refueling to allow aircraft to cover long distances, without long journeys taking weeks to get planes somewhere.
US Central Command is at Mc Dill though. But usually when you see large numbers of aircraft, more than usual, its typically some kind of exercise.
