Hmm, good question. You tell me.LOL. It seems to give, at the least, more options.
I find it interesting that it hasn't been particularly "talked about" in the media. I suppose that's due to the direct flight to the UAE rather than a
layover for a few days in Spain.
Besides, a flight from Anchorage to the UAE is about as long as it gets. The USAF thought enough to send em.
There's a great picture of the six outbound Raptors (from the UAE) and a tanker on the Aviationist site.
