Ikateq USAF base 08

Ikateq USAF base 08


The main hangar at the airbase collapsed a few years ago under the weight of the winter snow. My first reaction when I saw this place was that the US ought to send a barge to clean up the mess, but as I walked alone around the collapsed hangar, and took photographs of the trucks and jeeps, I thought that perhaps this ‘ghost town’ should remain as an open air museum for future visitors to see. It’s an amazing place and I felt privileged to be one of the relatively few people to have visited it.

Wow, you've really gotten to see some spectacular things over there. How were you this lucky? Did you know someone over there, perhaps?
