    Default Secret f-15, runway not long enough.

    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! :
