If you travel from the San Francisco Bay Area to the right coast, the route generally skirts the northern edge of the Nellis range. Of course, you
can't see much from high altitudes, but the shot of Basecamp clearly shows the X on the runway indicating the runway is not suitable for landing. ;-)
Well if you have an air base that is not on the maps, it might make sense to indicate the runways are not suitable for landing, even if they are. ;-)
Base Camp has a fine runway, a VOR, and a NDB with ATIS. No tower though, but it's not that busy.
