Field Notes

RAF Fairford is the European forward operating location for USAF and NATO contingencies and exercises. While the base has no permanently assigned aircraft it's mission is to maintain the combat ready location and be ready to receive and support operational units any time. It's also assigned to NASA as a diversion base for aborted Shuttle launches.

The site has a fully redacted composite satellite image hiding any and all aircraft on base. As a result of such redactive measures, the base is a favourite for the conspiracy fringe, especially relating to black triangles - stealth bombers.
