There are several candidates, and as for runway length, that's my best guesstimate. Look for the former SR-71 bases that you can find online, and
best guesstimate, if this is flying would be the more out of the way locations, as well as Groom.
Fair enough surely there can only be a few candidates. Would you presume if the SR72 was being flown, would it be based on US mainland soil. Or would
you think it would be off mainland US for example Guam or Diego Garcia
I've always liked the ascension islands as an air base in then Atlantic. Without it I think the Falklands war would of been a bit more difficult
The SR-72 will only be truly exciting once they build and fly one. At least the project coming to Edwards already seems to exist in material form.
Plans call for expanding the security perimeter around South Base just like they did years ago when the B-2 first came to Edwards.
or it could be base somewhere totally different where no one thinks to look. like when we had that secret mission from alaska they we doing a final
test of a previous uav followed by the f-22 doing background reconnaissance over russia.
