If Google earth measuring tool is roughly correct, the runway is only 2,000 ft and it looks like dirt. I'm pretty sure that any high-performance fighter (F-15,16, F/A-18) needs at least twice the length shown here. Very mysterious.

Great Find Micradott - it's rare to see an airplane that isn't tagged in the GEC layer.

@acc1gjg - the measuring tool in Google Earth is pretty accurate, many years ago I tested something that I knew was exactly one mile and Google Earth measured it at 5,279.2 feet.

For me, it looks like a training ground with some more or less good scenery.

But a very good find! :happynope:
