A little fun fact:

Klamath Falls’ Kingley field, is the only training base for F15 pilots in the the US.  When we first moved here I thought there must be an air show in town, as the jets go up and swoop around almost everyday.  Then I found out they are actually training fighter pilots here, like total Top Gun stuff.

Anyway, we have become friends with a few of the pilots and their families and last weekend, Steve aka Freak, gave us an up close and personal tour of the base and we got to travel out to the runway to watch the jets take off.  It was super cool.

ear protection, of course

pretty amazing that it even gets off the ground

another fun fact: one f15 training exercise uses the equivalent to a years worth of gas in a car.
