Yep, those are fun. That shelter is a of a similar size but bigger than the older type we had. Our older ones were built for the F5, so while the Viper isn't really all that big, it was still a fairly snug fit.

Here's an image of the older type shelters with a Jaguar in it. Quite snug:



The door in those weighs in at about 25-30 000lsb and is hydraulically lowered and raised. About a foot or so thick.

The newer type shelters are quite a bit larger, and can easily hold a Tornado with its wings spread. The door you see on the righthand side is a normal human-sized door, so that gives you a size-comparison. The door is still about a foot thick, but it weighs far more. It's also operated through wires and pulleys, and not hydraulic pistons like the old type.

Man that look cold, specially with an engine running, I bet the wind was bitterly cold. When it was cold like that I would try to wait on the left wheel well while the pilot did his checks.

Bardufoss is lovingly referred to as the Devils' frozen asshole It's in the inland, in a dip in the terrain, so the temps can get down to rather low levels.



-30C in january. Brr...

At Bodø MAS we only had about -18 to deal with, but we also had high winds. I was glad that we had excellent coldweather-gear, facemasks and the same helmets that the US Navy-crews on carriers have, plus, of course, the best spaceheater there is: F100PW220e's

Have you seen this thread, it was the very first one I posted on this version of the forums. I can't remember how the old ones look like anymore.

Unfortunate because of the angle of the camera is hard to tell which F-16 these are. They appear to be F-16C block 50 from 35 Fighter Wing (either 13­th or 14th Fighter Squadron). Note how some aircraft ACES seat will have the folding pitot tube and some don't.
